EST. 1999


In 1999, Sylvia Boaz founded the Balletiquette Dance School. As a way to showcase and serve the community, Balletiquette created a non-profit performing company, Balletiquette Dance Theatre Company, in 2004. Every year, the studio performs a school show in locations across the San Diego County. Our repertoire includes Giselle, Coppélia, The Nutcracker, Le Sylphide, and much more. Balletiquette Dance Theatre Co.'s background has been rooted in providing performance opportunities for young children, turning ordinary dancers into extraordinary dancers!


Guided by the belief that pilates is a strong compliment to ballet, Mrs. Sylvia expanded the studio by adding a Pilates Studio as well as another small dance studio in 2008. Balletiquette's main focus is Ballet and Pilates, however, the studio also provides a variety of dance styles offered to a diverse clientele of all ages and cultures. Balletiquette's pilates instructors are trained in STOTT Pilates.
