About us

The mission of the School of American Ballet is to train dancers in all ways necessary for professional careers in classical ballet, building upon principles defined by the School's founders -- George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein. Further, its mission is to serve as the official academy of New York City Ballet and to maintain its position as the pre-eminent academy of ballet in the United States, annually providing exceptional dancers for companiers around the world.

Within a campus dedicated to the training of highly talented students in ballet, the staff of the Office of Student Life is committed to providing a high quality of life and students' well being beyond their ballet training. This commitment is realized:

- Through attending to the developmental needs of students, enhancing their personal and professional growth and instilling a sense of responsibility and citizenship;
- Through fostering and promoting a well-rounded approach to the emotional, social, physical, cultural, intellectual, and artistic aspects of students' lives;
- Through providing age-appropriate programs and services in the areas of counseling and health, housing and residence life, activities, community rules and regulations;
- Through establishing a living and learning environment, a safe and healthy community where growth can occur and the integration of artistic, academic and life skills is the overall goal.
