Arc School of Ballet's mission is to provide high-quality classical ballet training in an encouraging atmosphere, thus promoting personal growth and artistic self–expression. Contributing a wealth of knowledge to the school, the professional faculty at Arc are dedicated to dance education and instilling invaluable qualities in their students that extend beyond their dance training: self–confidence and discipline, respect, work ethic and a sense of tradition. Arc School of Ballet shares common goals with its resident professional dance company, ARC Dance, to provide opportunities for the public to explore the joy and beauty of dance.
Arc School of Ballet and ARC Dance Company occupy over 9,000 square feet of the former Crown Hill School in the North Ballard/Crown Hill neighborhood of Seattle. Abundant parking surrounding the building is free and many Seattle Metro bus routes pass within walking distance.
Arc School of Ballet offers four comprehensive programs of exceptional quality to dancers of all ages and backgrounds.The variety of classes works to meet students' varying interests in dance, ranging from beginning to adult education/fitness to the professional career bound.
In the spring of 2013, ARC Dance Productions, associated with Arc School of Ballet launched Arc Youth Dance Company. It offers artistic and personal growth for dancers ages 11-20 years old who desire to further excellence in dance performance and further their knowledge of classical ballet-possibly aimed towards a professional dance career (or a college dance education.)
