Meet our Studio Manager, Molly✨

I began working for Tutu School Raleigh + Cary in 2018 as a part-time teacher during my time at Meredith College. In 2020, I began full time as the Communications Manager. I am originally from Wilmington, so to be bringing Tutu School magic to this wonderful community is such a dream come true!

I began dancing when I was 3 years old here in Wilmington, and I've been dancing ever since. Some of my favorite dance memories include the many roles I performed in Sanford School of Classical Ballet's “The Nutcracker” as well as my many professional theatre credits and choreography with The Temple Theatre Company in Sanford, NC. I graduated Cum Laude from Meredith College with a Bachelor of Arts in Dance Studies and a Bachelor of Arts in Communications. During my time at Meredith, I was a member of the Meredith Jazz and Tap Company and served as president of the National Dance Honors Society. Working with Tutu School is much more than a job. For me, it's the chance to combine my passions for dance, communications, and children on a daily basis- which I am so grateful for!

When our owner, Lara, wanted to re-open Tutu School Wilmington, I jumped at the opportunity to bring magic to the place I call home! I now reside in Wilmington with my boyfriend, Will, and our new puppy, Airlie! I am thrilled to share what I love about ballet with all of you💖 ~Molly

Meet our owner, Lara✨

A former Principal ballerina, a mom of 2 young children, & owner of Tutu School Raleigh & Cary.

Lara opened both Tutu Schools in the Triangle 7 years ago to share the magic of ballet with the next generation of little dancers. She’s thrilled to become the new owner of Tutu School Wilmington and continue this in the Wilmington community!

A little more from Lara...
“I fell in love with dancing as a young child and that spark lead me around the world. I trained in Chicago, Philadelphia, New York City, & Copenhagen before finding my way to Raleigh, NC to start a career with Carolina Ballet. I danced for 20 years & performed leading roles in over 120 ballets during that time including: The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, Romeo & Juliet, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Coppelia, Macbeth, and many more.”

She can’t wait to welcome your little dancers to storybook adventures in Ballet! 💗🩰💫

Want to know something we're really proud of? Our Ballet Storytime Curriculum!
 
Each and every class at Tutu School finishes with Ballet Storytime where we read and perform different sections from a famous ballet story each week. We also dance to music from the ballet itself, exposing little ones to Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky while they learn how to tell a story through their own movements. Each Ballet Storytime performance helps us close out every class with an extra dash of magic.✨

Our Story

Every child should know what it feels like to dance.

This is the founding principle of Tutu School. We believe that motor skill development is infinitely enhanced by Tchaikovsky and Bach, that young imaginations benefit immensely from exploring the enchanted worlds of swans and sugar plums, and that twirling should be a fundamental part of any childhood. Every aspect of our curriculum is carefully crafted for each division of dancer, and our faculty is unparalleled in its quality and devotion to what we do. Schedule a free trial class by registering online at https://www.tutuschool.com/wilmington.

In addition to our ballet classes for children and toddlers we offer camp and parties to create lifelong unforgettable memories!

South Carolina native, Madeline, began dancing at the age of two, and ballet quickly became her first true passion. She performed as a young dancer in productions of The Nutcracker, Dracula, and Cinderella, then extensively trained under the former National President of the Cecchetti Council of America - an organization dedicated to maintaining the standards and method of ballet training.

Hey there. Hope your doing good. I've had you on my mind. I know navigating through these times certainly is hard. I just wanted to reach out and see if there is anything we can do to help promote or share info about updates for your studio? If your are offering any special camps, summer classes, or events we'll be happy to post or share this information. Imaginations is happy to announce we'll be offering dance shoe PRICE MATCHING on all of our dance shoes. We've changed all of our shoe pricing online and in house to match discount dance and dance solutions. This will a permanent change for us. We are really striving to keep up with these companies. So now your dancer will be able to be professional fit, take advantage of the guaranteed lowest price, keep the money local, and help a small business stay alive. We are also offering a free $20 girt card for any $100 gift card or in store purchase June 1st through June 10th. If you don't mind passing this price matching information to you students we'd greatly appreciate it! Again please reach out if we can help you in anyway.

We are thinking of all our North Carolina Tutu Schoolers right now in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. Our hearts go out to all the families experiencing significant loss and damage. ❤️ Tutu School Wilmington is now reopened and would like to offer any families displaced by the storm free classes for as long as they need. Classes resume today - September 24th. Please email [email protected] for more information. Regularly scheduled classes are continuing at Tutu School Raleigh and Tutu School Cary. Please email [email protected] or [email protected] for more information on those locations ✨
Thank you tutu school wilmington! Eleanor loved her 1st dance class!!!
Everything's cool...Tutu school's interpretation of "A Secret Garden." Loose and free flowing, calm kids, usual anxious parents, not too long, a good time had by all...Thank you Madeline Martin.
“I knew from the beginning I wanted a downtown location for the studio. Since Tutu School is a small, boutique studio, I wanted it to have a quaint, neighborhood feel to it," said Tutu School Wilmington owner Madeline Martin.
