Co-founded in 1944 by the late Mary Day and Lisa Gardiner, The Washington School of Ballet (TWSB) is recognized nationally and internationally for its classical training and dedication to excellence in dance and dance education. Artistic Director Julie Kent oversees all aspects and a full integration of the Company and the School to provide the highest level of dance training to students.

The school trains more than 900 students each year at its Northwest Campus studios on Wisconsin Avenue and an additional 350 students at its Southeast Campus housed at The Town Hall Education, Arts and Recreation Center (THEARC) also known as TWSB SE. The Joseph C. Coleman Studios at Cathedral Commons serves as an additional NW campus.

The Washington Ballet’s first-ever Chautauqua Institution residency will include two evening Amphitheater performances, classes for the public, master classes for the School of Dance, open rehearsals, pre-concert lectures and other engagement opportunities with the Chautauqua community.
