Classical Ballet Training

In a Christian environment where development is through nurturing, excellence is the standard, and the name of Jesus is honored above all else.


Each winter, Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts comes together to present a full length story ballet that paints a vivid picture of the Christmas story through dance. We us all the elements and trimmings of a typical winter story ballet, like The Nutcracker, but we prefer a ballet that is our very own Christmas tradition: The Carpenter's Son.

A Valentine's Ball

Saturday, February 14, 4:30-7:30pm

Each year, the professional Company Artists of Ballet 5:8 put on a Valentine's Ball held at the Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts studios. Girls and boys ages three through twelve are cordially invited to attend. The Ball, including dinner, crafts, a short devotional in age-appropriate groups, and a live performance by the Ballet 5:8 professional company, is a delightful event for young people and a correspondingly wonderful opportunity for parents to get away for a few hours! Proceeds from the event go directly to the Ballet 5:8 Pointe Shoe Fund.

All students must pre-register by Saturday, February 7th. Dinner is included in registration.

Admission is $20 per child; immediate families may add additional registrants, $15 for the second child, and $5 for each additional child.
