In all forms of dance, precision and achievement cannot be gained quickly; it must be motivated, nurtured, and directed. Faculty members of the Montgomery Ballet School have performed in international dance companies, earned degrees in dance from major universities, and have years of experience teaching the art of dance. The official school of Montgomery Ballet provides unparalleled excellence in training and offers performance opportunities throughout the year, including the holiday classic, The Nutcracker. Students also have an option to perform in the Montgomery Ballet School's annual springtimeproductionat the Davis Theatre for the Performing Arts.

The Montgomery Ballet school year coincides with the Montgomery area's public schools, with two months off in the summer months.
