The Academy of Ballet Fantastique offers a fresh approach to ballet lessons for children ages 3 and up in our bright, spacious dance studios in downtown Eugene. At The Academy of Ballet Fantastique, relationships are the focus, every dancer means something to us, and our training program in the centuries-proven Russian Vaganova Syllabus is not only driven by athleticism, but also compelled by artistry. Our goal is that every young dancer finds a place where he or she is guided through personal goals and challenges by college-educated professional dance instructors in a motivated, inspiring atmosphere that is deeply committed to excellence.
Ballet Fantastique was founded in 2000 by mother-daughter team Donna and Hannah Bontrager. Over the past decade, the nonprofit organization has grown to house both its thriving Academy with professional dance training, and the Ballet Fantastique contemporary Chamber Company, comprised of professional dancers from across the U.S.
Ballet Fantastique is an equal-opportunity institution committed to cultural diversity. We admit students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin. Please learn more about what us below, and don't hesitate to contact us to speak with one of our instructors. Welcome—we're so glad you're here!
