The School at The Georgia Ballet
The Georgia Ballet School, founded in 1960 by Iris Hensley, is dedicated to providing outstanding instruction in ballet and related dance styles in a professional, structured, yet nurturing environment. We believe the pursuit of dance is unmatched in its benefits - aesthetic, physical, and mental. We also stress that a vigorous pursuit of good dancing is of great personal value, no matter what the student's ultimate occupation.
Leading the school is Artistic Director
Gina Hyatt-Mazon, School Director
and Ballet Master Janusz Mazon. Ms. Hyatt-Mazon and Mr. Mazon are international gold medal winners and former
Hamburg Ballet principal dancers. Ms. Ziemann-DeVos performed with the Pennsylvania Ballet, Des Moines Ballet, New Haven Ballet, and for seven years with The Georgia Ballet. The Georgia Ballet School faculty is a small group of dedicated and enthusiastic dance education professionals who work closely together within a carefully designed curriculum comprised of thirteen grade levels, each with a written syllabus to ensure progress.
The Georgia Ballet announced the addition
