Why should you choose Savannah Ballet School of Dance

About Us

Savannah, Southeast Georgia and the Creative Coast have a plethora of dance schools. So WHY should you choose Savannah Ballet School of Dance? What sets us apart? Funny you should ask! Savannah Ballet School of Dance is Savannah’s Premiere school of dance and professional company. Now, what does THAT mean? We are a full service studio offering the best ballet in the area. Most of our students take at least two ballet classes a week and add to their technique by studying jazz, contemporary, creative movement and tap. We specialize in the Vaganova method, which requires the use of the whole body. It’s truly beautiful! Our teachers are top notch. SBSD’s teachers have many years of professional dance under their belt. And current company members keep dancers on their toes (literally!) with the latest dance trends. After one class, you’ll see why thousands of dancers have been educated with Ms. Sue and crew since 1988.

The Official School of Dance

Savannah Ballet School of Dance has the honor of housing Savannah Ballet Theatre….Savannah’s ONLY professional dance company! Dancers come from all over the country to win one of the coveted spots in the company. Many of SBT’s members have Bachelor (OR HIGHER!) degrees. They are wonderful role models and our students enjoy taking class from these very talented dancers!

Class Size

Every dancer knows how frustrating it can be to dance in a crowded room. We keep our class numbers small. This small number allows the teacher to provide corrections and individual attention.


Let’s be honest-performing on a real stage for friends and family is the best part about learning to dance. Not only will our students produce a fun end-of-the-year performance, our students have the chance to perform alongside the company in shows such as The Nutcracker, The Little Mermaid, The Wizard of Oz, and The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. These shows are well known throughout Savannah and patrons always leave the theater with a BIG smile on their face! The past three years, SBT’s performance have been sold out! The beautiful Lucas Theatre is the official home of the Savannah Ballet Theatre. Dancers will have a fun, professional and rewarding experience that they will never forget.

Studio Space

SBSD offers two studio spaces. Studio A is located upstairs with loads of natural light. Studio B is located downstairs and has an adjacent dressing room and waiting area. Both studios have an attached bathroom. Our studio’s have state of the art audio equipment and spring floors. Our offices are located upstairs and have ample seating for parents and students.

Fun for all ages

We teach all ages. We begin accepting students at age three and even offer Adult Ballet classes for mom and dad. Want to take a class without committing to a full year? We can do that too! We offer advanced jazz, ballet, and tap a la carte. This option is great for college students and young professionals!
We are happy to meet and discuss class options for you or your dancer. Want a tour of the studio? We can do that to! Give us a call 912-897-2102 or for more information abby@savannahballettheatre.org.

Savannah Ballet School of Dance was a wonderful opportunity for my daughters. They gained confidence on stage which has translated to their school activities i.e. being able to stand up in front of class and speak with no hesitation. I am grateful for the character building and poise they learned under the tutelage of Ms. Sue as well as guest teachers and choreographers.

With small class sizes and personalized instruction, Savannah Ballet is able to offer students the attention needed to reach their potential in dance as well as all aspects of their lives. Having the emphasis on classical training as opposed to competition dance is the primary reason we chose to enroll at Savannah Ballet. The experiences our daughters have been afforded by dancing with Mrs. Sue will forever impact their lives.
