Each year, between 120 and 140 enthusiastic dance students will receive dance education and performance opportunities through The Sun Valley Ballet School (SVBS). The students participate in up to three or four different classes every week, plus for the senior dancers, extra rehearsal hours. SVBS is pleased to offer this experience to young people residing in the greater Wood River Valley. The Sun Valley Ballet Foundation, Inc was established in 1978. At that time it was simply, The Ballet Foundation, Inc. Through the years the Foundation has supported The Sun Valley Ballet School, it too having a few varied names; The Ballet School, The Clara Spiegel School of Performing Arts, The Sun Valley Performing Arts School and now the well established, The Sun Valley Ballet School.
