World-Class Dance Instruction in Edmonton and Calgary

World-Class Dance Instruction in Edmonton and Calgary

At Alberta Ballet School, all the world is a stage! We provide instruction in our Edmonton and Calgary Studios – but that isn’t the only place our students learn!


Our Facilities

Edmonton School

Our Edmonton location is in the Ruth Carse Centre for Dance, aptly named for one of Alberta Ballet’s founders: Ruth Carse. This thoughtfully constructed building is home to several recreational and professional dance companies and provides a source of inspiration to all our dancers. This facility features large dance studios, full change rooms, free parking, and a parent/student lounge in the front lobby. We offer programming six days a week at this location.

Calgary School

Alberta Ballet School’s Calgary studio is in downtown Calgary. The 30,000 square foot facility features six large studios and six academic classrooms as well as a full costume department, on-site physiotherapy room, student change rooms with lockers, a lobby area, a retail store for dance apparel and supplies, administration offices, a welcoming reception, and an outdoor annex. Calgary is also home to our Professional Division, which is tailored to students pursuing a career in dance. Each year, our Calgary location provides unparalleled instruction to more than 750 students. Like our Edmonton facility, our Calgary location offers programming six days a week.


Some of our greatest learning opportunities occur through our day-to-day experiences. Professional Division students from out of town have the unique opportunity to live in Residence 15 minutes away from our Calgary location on a secure, private floor at Mount Royal University’s West Residence – Building D. Here, students have the chance to increase their independence and become self-sufficient – all within a supportive, multicultural setting. Students receive guidance from our Residence Team as well as from the entire Alberta Ballet School community.

Whether you’re a student in Edmonton, a student in Calgary, or a student joining us from abroad, Alberta Ballet School’s safe and supportive facilities will provide a foundation for quality instruction and lessons that will last a lifetime. Interested in taking a tour? Contact us today!
