Welcome to SCBS

Our award-winning school provides world-class ballet instruction in the tradition of the Cuban method. We impart a comprehensive program that builds up both the skills and confidence of our students, whether they are interested in following a professional dance career or just enjoy dancing recreationally. Our faculty members are all former professional dancers and qualified educators, who are passionate about sharing their knowledge and experiences with the next generation of Ballet stars.

Our mission is to foster global understanding by training a diverse student body of beginning through pre-professional dancers, recruited internationally and locally, in the Cuban ballet style; to provide scholarship assistance for talented students in financial need; to offer diversity in cultural performances in our community; and to bring educational programs and performances to schools, residences for seniors and civic . . organizations.
