OUR MISSION IS TO PROVIDE ALL STUDENTS WITH THE SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE THEY NEED TO ENJOY AND APPRECIATE DANCE AND THEATER FOR A LIFETIME.
We believe all students are important whether they aspire to be a professional or whether they take dance for the physical benefit and joy of it. Dance classes promote coordination, strength, balance, good posture, grace and self-confidence. Our goal is to provide a nurturing , fun and safe environment for children and adults.
BLUE SPRINGS BALLET & PERFORMING ARTS has been in existence since 1992. Melissa Morris directed a program for 10 years at The Dance Institute prior to opening her own studio. All of our teachers have been trained to teach students in a graded system. They also frequently attend Dance Seminars to continually bring fresh concepts into the classroom. Choreography and costumes are always age appropriate. Our students have been accepted to numerous ballet programs and colleges across the country . They have received many scholarships . Many have professional dance and teaching careers. * See instructor biographies *
We have a 5,000 square foot facility with 2 large dance rooms and a mid-size dance room. We also have Safety mirrors in our dance rooms. We have 4 bathrooms, a dressing room and a kitchen for students to eat snacks when they are at the studio for extra practices or rehearsals.

FAIRYTALE BALLET PROGRAM --We incorporate a Fairytale Ballet Program for Creative Movement, Pre-Ballet and Level I classes. Students learn the stories of fairytale ballets such as Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Snow White, Firebird etc. and learn dances appropriate for their level that will portray different characters from the ballet they are learning. They will also be able to wear simple costumes provided by Blue Springs Ballet Inc. as they portray these characters.
BLUE SPRINGS BALLET COMPANY--
We have a performing company which is supported by Friends of the Blue Springs Ballet a non-profit organization that promotes cultural awareness in our community and provides scholarships to company members for various workshops and dance programs. We have performed an annual Nutcracker since 1993 among other classical ballets. These performances are open to the general public. We also offer field trips to school groups. We have invited thousands of children to attend over the years as our guests who might not be able to attend a ballet performance otherwise. We enjoy the letters and pictures we have received form the excited children. It is amazing how many details the children remember from costumes to scenery to the characters that each dancer portrays; every child has their personal favorite.
