BalletMet Dance Academy

Did you know that our Academy actually pre-dates the BalletMet Company?

Daryl Kamer began the academy in 1974, but it didn’t become the BalletMet Academy until after the professional company was officially formed in 1978. Since BalletMet’s move to a 35,000 square-foot dance campus in downtown Columbus in 1990, the Company and Academy have both become recognized as institutions of local and national stature.

BalletMet Dance Academy is now ranked among the nation’s largest studios associated with a professional company and offers hundreds of classes each year to students ages 3 to 84. The Academy boasts state-of-the-art studios, faculty members who have danced with companies around the world and live musical accompaniment in most ballet classes.
