Crooked Tree Arts Center - School of Ballet

Founded 21 years ago by Artistic Director Heather Raue, the CTAC School of Ballet has been training young people in Northern Michigan for careers as professional dancers and artists. The School of Ballet offers professional training in ballet and alternative dance techniques and concepts. Our program has landed talented students professional contracts and launched students into BFA programs and dance related careers. Our professional, qualified instructors, most of whom have graduated from the School of Ballet, have returned to teach with us after having continued their own dance experiences.

Special thanks to the Hestia Women's Giving Circle and the Zonta Club of Petoskey for their support!
