The Faculty and Staff

The Nebraska Ballet Theatre & School is comprised of teachers with diverse experiences in the art of dance. Our Faculty consists of teachers who are professionally trained and have degrees in several of the great ballet syllabi and methods, many of our Faculty and Staff have Bachelor of Arts degrees in dance. This gave them the opportunity to study teaching methods with some of the finest teachers in America. Teachers at Nebraska Ballet Theatre & School focus on the education of dance on a physical, mental, and emotional level. Instilling a high standard of excellence in training, adapting and preserving the Neoclassic and Romantic styles of classical ballet; we consciously balance a student’s experience with a strong foundation in modern and jazz techniques. We believe that this base will give all of our dancers the knowledge to succeed in today’s eclectic repertoire.
