About our school . . .
The Hayden School of Ballet was founded in 1960 by Lucy Hayden. Since 1960, the studio has been offering professional dance instruction to Albuquerque and area children and adults. In Hayden's almost fifty years of existence, the school has earned a reputation for excellence. In the tradition of its founder, Lucy Hayden, the school and staff provide a warm, caring, and creative atmosphere for the aspiring dancer to grow in both self-worth and personal ability.

At Hayden School of Ballet, we believe that there is no better way for a child to learn about his or her body than through movement. Every child is already a natural mover, deriving joy and confidence in every new skill they have mastered. Our program is designed to inspire any child who loves to move and encourage them to explore a movement language that nurtures imagination and sense of self while instilling the self-esteem, discipline, and focus that is needed not only for dance but for life.

At our studio, children's classes are designed for young children from ages three to twelve. A friendly and nurturing staff and limited class enrollment ensure that each child receives individual attention. We carefully plan our dance syllabi in accordance with children's physical, mental, and emotional development. At Hayden, we strive to provide children with a rich movement experience that encourages an understanding and love dance. Our commitment to creating a secure, professional environment will allow your child to grown in strength, coordination, and confidence as each step takes your child closer to mastering the art of ballet.

The same nurturing and positive sprit that characterizes our childern's dance classes carries over into both teenage and adult ballet and jazz classes. All classes at the Hayden School of Ballet share the goal of teaching movement that will foster confidence, health, and grace in all students.
