"I know that I wouldn't be where I am today without you. My time at Ballet Etudes pushed me to experiment with all the elements that are required to be a professional dancer. You helped me build my strengths technically, physically, mentally, and artistically."
- McKhayla Pettingill, Houston Ballet
In 2010, Ballet Etudes opened the doors to its very own studio located in Gilbert, Arizona after having been in existence since 1986. Classes are offered for ages 3+.
Created by Sharon Seder Meko in 1986 to fulfill the artistic needs of serious young dancers, company members strive to meet the same high artistic standards of a professional company in their dance training, rehearsals, and performances.
Ballet Etudes offers numerous performing opportunities to not only its company members, but also to serious young dancers throughout the Phoenix area.
