Ballet Royale is entering its Tenth Year of providing the finest training in Minnesota, housed in its own state-of-the-art Building!

Ballet Royale is on Kenrick Avenue right off I-35 on the border of Burnsville and Lakeville, across from Buck Hill ski area.  Ballet Royale is proud to be the home and official school of one of the area's emerging gems, the professional ballet company, Twin Cities Ballet of Minnesota.


After fewer than three years of operation Ballet Royale both outgrew its then-leased space and established itself as one of the foremost dance academies in the state; the search for commensurate facilities then lead to the design, creation and construction of its own free-standing space: the first classical ballet academy to be built, with all new construction, in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. 


Designed literally from the ground up by dancers for dancers, Ballet Royale Minnesota's studios feature three large dance studios plus a fourth smaller Pilates/supplemental studio that all have ample natural light, 15+ feet high ceilings, in-floor radiant heat, and a state of the art sprung dance floor system; it also includes a convertible a 3600ft² performance space, Wi-Fi counters, a large Women’s Dressing room with en suite restroom, staff room, storage and of course, easy access and free parking!
