Poise, Confidence and Respect

Training The Next Generation Of Dancers And Artists

Under the artistic direction of Maryanne Kodzis and Thomas Vacanti, Pioneer Valley Ballet is dedicated to providing all children with the opportunity to experience the joys of movement through the study of classical ballet.

Whether or not children aspire to professional dance careers, the exercises and teaching styles used in ballet classes create strong, healthy students who develop poise, confidence, respect and self-esteem.


Training at PVB

At PVB, we believe that ballet is available for people of all ages and all body types. We believe that our classes support the development of creative thinking, problem solving skills and the expansion of imaginative reach. As part of the PVB community, our students gain a sense of membership in a vibrant arts community and become responsible citizens and leaders who support the arts.
