Our family highly recommend this place. It is a school where kids really learn the ballet. School where each movement is practiced. Our daughter was taking classes at different school before,but for the first time she really counts the days till next class

Exceptional ballet program for the serious ballet dancers. My opinion that Illinois Classical Balletis by far is one of the best program in NorthShore. Very professional,very detail-oriented. The teachers are wonderful and care very much for the students. The students are very nice and supportive of one another. 16

I would recommend this school to those parents who are looking for something more than just afterschool activities or recreational type programs Very effective training. The teacher really knows what needs to be done for your child to improve one’s skills, regardless whether you have short or long term goals Oh, and did I mention warm and friendly

Unlike 95% of dance studios offering summer intensive in Chicagoland, this school provides a wonderful environment to learn ballet.Everyone there is focused on classical ballet .Teacher is very encouraging, supportive and patient. She breaks things down and make them look very easy.Correct positions, correct posture, correct technique
Mom/ Vanessa Kerber
My daughter knows what she wants to do with her life...and that is to be a professional ballerina. We have been at other studios but none of them focused specifically on pre-professional ballet training. Illinois Classical Ballet has a very impressive record of significant achievements of their students not only in International ballet competitions

I asked for try-out class and we were given one. That is when I saw the difference in training, though I am not a ballet fan.And then we were offered a complimentary tickets for their summer recital. Until that day I still wasn't sure if made a right choice. Their performance changed everything.
