Start the Corvallis School year off with Dance Classes at Regional School of Ballet. 

‘Every day brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.’
― Oprah Winfrey


We’ve been having a great summer session.  Hope you have made it to some classes! 

It’s fun to see RSB dancers returning to take classes.  Molly has been away at school.  She says she has good memories of dancing at RSB and loves to see everyone again. 

Andrea F has come back to the studio because she enjoys dance for exercise and wanted to come to the studio where she grew up dancing.

Jenna loves ballet.  She recently moved back to the area and RSB is where she started dancing as a child.

Ashley has been traveling and working after college. She has moved back to the area and is back dancing with us. Ashley returned to RSB last year because she likes Shelly Svoboda and the teachers at RSB. She likes how the teachers have strong backgrounds in dance and how they teach good technique. Ashley says that she too has great memories and that RSB is like a family.

We’ve had a sighting of Andrea H, too.  It’s been great to see everyone and we love to see how RSB dancers keep dance in their lives.

Studio Sponsorships

Regional School of Ballet is inviting local business to sponsor community dancers.  You sponsorship provides you the opportunity to advertise at RSB performances, on the website and in the studio.  Annual studio sponsorships help RSB dancers defray the increasing costs for theater rental and technicians, prop and costume expenses and program costs. 

Children in dance learn to focus their attention, to concentrate and to follow directions.   Dance allows children to explore their own creativity and capacity to respond to music through dance.  Dance welcomes everyone and neglects no one.

Under the direction of Shelly Svoboda, Regional School of Ballet has been providing a positive, enriching atmosphere for beginning to advanced level students since 1987.  RSB offers a number of performance opportunities to dance students in the community, including The Nutcracker, The Dance Gallery, the Lilac Fairy Tea, and the annual RSB Recital.

Multiple sponsorship levels are available to fit any advertising budget.  If you are interested in sponsoring The Regional School of Ballet, please download and complete a sponsor form today. Sponsorship Form
