Baird Ballet is a Christian based dance school and our mission is to develope well rounded dancers with a strong emphasis on classical ballet. Classical ballet is the foundation of all dance forms and teaches each student discipline, confidence and a positive self expression. Balanchine technique is emphasized.
The Baird Ballet performs twice a year at the Rome City Auditorium. The Majestic Ballet Concert performs at Christmas (which is our christian production) and our Spring Concert performs in May which features all out ballet, tap, jazz and contemporary with a matinee and evening shows.
Baird Ballet offers a training program for the serious ballet student. At age 8, two ballet classes a week are recommended. Students move to the next level as more classes a week are required. Ballet students may enter pointe class at 11 1/2 years of age but must be taking two ballet classes a week.
