why pink petal

Participating in fun, confidence-building activities as a child with a skilled instructor leads to mental well-being in kids. At Pink Petal Ballet, we take your child’s brain development seriously. We’re here to provide a safe place for your small person to express themselves physically and to be themselves emotionally.


Through learning dance and mindfulness, your child will gain social bonds, learn how to feel comfortable in a group, and gain insightful knowledge of how movement can affect their brains in a positive way.

our year-end performance

VIVID (1).png

VIVID is a story for anyone who has had their light ‘dimmed’. It involves a group of officials - the Shine Patrol, who intentionally seek out those who are too vibrant & too vivid in order to dim their light. Correspondingly, as the characters in the story age, their light seems to be dimmed as they take on the responsibilities of growing up. It’s the job of a savvy group of activists - the Spark Plugs, to find the location of the dimmer and set the dial to VIBRANT once again.

We’re so excited to present our year-end performance at Centennial Theatre on Sunday, June 25 featuring 260 Pink Petal dancers.

Tickets will be available through closer to *showtime*


summer camps
July 31 - August 4

Pink Petal Summer Camps are a beautiful combo of play + structure. We emphasize kindness, friendship, creativity, and movement while encouraging the dancers to let go and dance! Together, we’ll be learning some ballet basics, creating our own moves, making new friends, and finding the play in ballet.
