Miss Diana's School of Ballet opened in May 2010. The studio began as a children's ballet school with roughly 40 students, and rented space out of the Firehouse Dance Hall in downtown Medford. We have now expanded to almost 300 students of all ages and are continuing to grow and increase the number and quality of our classes and performances. In August 2017 we were proud to open our very own space inside the Rogue Valley Mall. In our beautiful new studio we continue striving for excellence and providing our students and their families with the best possible ballet school experience.
Our studio is a performance-based school that focuses on teaching our dancers to learn, laugh, and dance! At Miss Diana's we promote a family atmosphere that is stress-free for our students and encourages great camaraderie between all of our dancers. We strive to not only provide quality instruction of ballet technique, but also strive to cultivate core values such as confidence, strength, self-awareness, and equality. At Miss Diana's we never hold auditions and all of our ballerinas (Pre-Ballet and up) are invited to perform in our productions and recitals.
We perform full-length productions semi-annually which showcase all our Ballet 4, Technique, and Pointe dancers. These productions include classical shows such as The Nutcracker, as well as original ballet adaptations by Artistic Director Kayla Garrett. Our original ballet repertoire currently includes: Peter Pan, A Frozen Ballet, Alice in Wonderland, and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. We try to bring a brand new ballet adaptation to the stage every year, so be on the lookout for what exciting production may be coming next! We also perform two recitals every year which showcase all our dancers Pre-Ballet through Ballet 3. In addition to these four annual performances, our dancers perform throughout the community at various retirement homes and at events such as the Rogue Valley Mall's Halloween Trick-or-Treat Extravaganza, Providence's Festival of Trees, and the Britt's Children's Festival.
