Excelsior School of Dance and Performing Arts

offers classes in Ballet, Modern, Tap, Hip Hop and Drama.

ESD is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 8 level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development.  The ABT National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels. 


Directors Sonja Staines and Liza Pollok are both ABT Certified Teachers, and have successfully completed the ABT Teacher Training Intensive in Pre Primary through Level 5 (ESD Level 8) and Pre Primary through Level 3 (ESD Level 5) respectively.


Each student receives individual attention, and the syllabus system  encourages personal goal setting as students, over the age of 7 years, aim for an annual exam to move to the next level.  All students also enjoy performing in our highly acclaimed annual theatrical production.  Our performances are enjoyed by all; from grandparents, neighbors and of course mom and dad! 

 

Our program also caters to our teens, offering vocational training options, class assisting and a Teacher Training Program.  ESD also hosts the professional traveling ballet company, Ballet Excelsior of Houston, and eligible students aim to become part of the Ballet Excelsior Trainee Program (BET).  BET program gives the dancers a company experience and provides more performance opportunities.  This year BET will perform locally and travel to Dance Revolution and Project Dance NYC. 


We strive to provide students with a wholesome environment where they can work to achieve their  personal goals, develop their musicality and artistry skills, while developing confidence, respect for authority and their classmates and disciplines that will aid them throughout life.


Our studio is located about 2 miles from The Woodlands Mall, yet in a beautiful country setting. Come and visit us!
