WHAT WE TEACH

JSSB is a ballet school that honors the teaching of classical ballet as the premier training of young children. We use techniques founded in the major classical ballet styles of the Italian and French to begin; as training advances, the school incorporates the English, Danish (Bournonville), and Russian methods.

Our world class faculty has over 150 years of combined teaching experience!

PERFORM

The Judith Svalander Dance Theatre (JSDT), based in Crystal Lake, was founded in 1979 by Judith Svalander and has grown out of the pre-professional level dance program at JSSB. Each year, the JSDT performs the Nutcracker and a spring showcase as the resident dance company at the Woodstock Opera House.
