Our Philosophy

Eastern Connecticut Ballet is the region’s premier school for dance, and our expert faculty is dedicated to our students’ development and growth. A strong classical technique forms the base of our curriculum. We emphasize energy and movement, preparing students for the demands of today’s classical ballet and contemporary companies. Whether or not a student is planning to pursue a career in dance, she or he will receive a quality education at ECB. Step by step, our pre-professional program challenges all of our students to reach their potential as dancers.

“Each class provides a challenging opportunity for the students. At ECB there is an extremely high expectation for excellence but within a nurturing and supportive environment. Teachers emphasize attention to detail in every technique. They motivate students to be their best, both in ballet and in all aspects of life.” — ECB Student
