The Dayton Ballet School Second Company prides itself on the generous amounts of stage time our students get during our professional performances.  Actual experience motivates excellence, builds confidence, and provides an essential foundation for professional development and accomplishment.

Play our video to hear more about the experiences of one of our dance students and the impact that DBII had on her as a developing dancer.

The school realizes that most students will not pursue a career in dance.  However, the benefits of taking ballet can last a lifetime – helping to make them focused and disciplined in school as well as into their adulthood.
