Main Division
Where futures take flight

The Main Division program is designed to enrich students’ lives through dance while developing grace, poise, mental and physical discipline as well as an appreciation and awareness of the arts. Main Division curriculum is focused on building technically strong and versatile dancers and cultivating pre-professional potential. All classes are taught by the Otto M. Budig’s distinguished faculty including Cincinnati Ballet dancers and artistic staff.


The Main Division is comprised of seven levels of classical training with each level building upon the next. Dance studies are enhanced through the incorporation of other dance genres and techniques which may include modern, jazz, character, musical theater and Pilates, among others. Students are placed by technical level and are evaluated at the end of each school year for potential advancement into the next level. New students, age 8, will be placed in Level 1. All other new students should contact the Academy at 513.562.1111 to schedule a placement class.
