Ballet Theatre of Phoenix is buzzing with dancers in its modern, new space while also offering online classes.

The dance school and home of Convergence Ballet recently moved into its new home at 6201 N. 7th St, where it holds 7,800 square feet for dance instruction. Fall in-person and online, Zoom classes began recently. The school emphasizes classical ballet while Ballet Theatre of Phoenix instructors follow the American Ballet Theatre’s National Curriculum. They teach students from age 3 to pre-professional levels. The studios also offer extensive ballet classes for adults, as well as classes in other movement styles including contemporary and tap dance. Members of the community can rent the studios to provide a place for dancers and instructors to develop diverse movement including yoga, salsa, Bellydance and hip-hop.

Convergence Ballet is planning to enhance its PLIES Program (Providing Leaps in Elementary Schools), which offers free dance lessons to students at Loma Linda Elementary School. Previously the dance school and Convergence Ballet were operating at 2326 E. Indian School Road. The new space is larger than the previous location and in a safe area with good traffic flow, said Jennifer Cafarella, Ballet Theatre of Phoenix director and founder and artistic director of Convergence Ballet.

Visitors can make appointments to take private, guided tours of the studios. To reserve a tour, call 602-957-3364. To learn more, visit
