Philosophy

Octorara Ballet School exists to bring beauty, hope and excellence to our community through the art of ballet. We are not your typical dance school. No inappropriate costumes, competitions or sassy attitudes. We offer high-quality dance instruction in a kind and loving environment. Beautiful performances, good manners and lots of joy! 

 Every family is important to us and we are always available to answer your questions, large or small.

We understand that families are busy, so we provide:

  • Convenient locations in Gap and Parkesburg with varied class schedules

  • We do not compete in dance competitions which cost a lot of time, money, and foster bad attitudes.

  • Beautiful story ballet performances and age-appropriate costumes for all of our dancers.

  • Unlike most dance schools, we do not charge costume or performance fees; monthly tuition includes everything except your dancer’s outfit and tickets to attend the performance.

  • We welcome beginning students at any age.
