The Collage Dance Conservatory boasts the largest dance training program for boys and young men in the entire region so that they, too, can experience the impact of dance education

All of these ballet dancers receive subsidized tuition and 100% of students who began their training through Turning Pointe, our in-school dance education program, receive full scholarships.

Making ballet training accessible for all of our students, not only benefits them, it positively impacts our community too. According to a national study, ballet training is proven to improve academic performance, improve health and lower crime and poverty rates.
