Best dance school for students from age five to 65 

Le Ballet Petit School of Dance

4630 N. Francisco

At Le Ballet Petit School of Dance, you can learn not only to plié and pirouette, but also how to master your jazz and hip-hop moves. Kittie LaPointe dreamed up Le Ballet Petit back in 1954, and it's been more than 40 years since the school upgraded from the basement to a wide studio space, a place where girls and boys from age five to 65 come to twirl and tap. Students perform full-length productions of The Nutcracker in the winter and either Cinderella or Swan Lake in the spring. Be prepared: no matter what your age, you very well might end up in a tulle-trimmed costume. —Sarah Louise Klose
