Our series on Dance in the US goes out to the west as we take a closer look at Ballet Idaho Academy…
Name: Ballet Idaho Academy
Location: 501 S. 8th Street Boise, Idaho 83702
Ballet Idaho Academy is associated with Ballet Idaho, the company. As I looked through the site, I found an impressive “handbook” for parents that outlines in detail nearly anything you could possibly want to know about attending classes there. A very helpful resource. It discusses class levels, gives class descriptions, talks about summer programs and performance opportunities and describes the dress code and code of conduct. Excellent!
The school offers an ensemble, which gives students the opportunity to get pre-professional experience through an educational outreach program. Admission is by audition only.
