Today is #InternationalWomensDay! The Tutu School franchise began in 2008 with founder and CEO Genevieve Custer Weeks. Since then, Tutu School has grown to include just under 30 “franchiserinas!” We’re so proud to have created such a strong team of women.💖

We couldn’t do our #blackhistorymonth hightlights without the incredible Misty Copeland!

Misty Copeland made history as the first African American ballerina to be promoted to the rank of Principal Dancer with the prestigious American Ballet Theater in their 75 year history. In addition to her dance career, she was named one of the 100 most influential people in the world by Time Magazine and is a spokesperson, public speaker, author, and role model for thousands of young dancers. (Fun Fact: Tutu School recently sold signed copies of her most recent children's book Bunheads. The proceeds went to support @browngirlsdoballet ) Learn more about Misty Copeland here: @mistyonpointe 💗

We’re continuing to highlight some amazing black dancers! Next up: Aesha Ash!

In 1996 at 18, Aesha Ash joined the New York City Ballet and was the only African American woman in the company at the time. She then went on to dance with Béjart Ballet, Alonso King LINES Ballet, and Morphoses. In 2011 she founded @theswandreamsproject to encourage African American children to start ballet. In 2020, she became the first Black female member of the School of American Ballet's permanent faculty. (Fun Fact: Aesha Ash also briefly taught classes at Tutu School in California!)🩰💓✨

February is #blackhistorymonth! All month long we will be showcasing artists that celebrate Black achievements in the dance world! Our first highlight, Debra Austin, has a connection to NC!

Debra Austin was the first African American female dancer at the New York City Ballet at age 16, and is credited as the first African American Principal dancer of a major American Ballet company when she was invited to join Pennsylvania Ballet as a Principal in 1982. She also danced with Zurich Ballet in Switzerland. She has taught all over the country since retiring in 1990, and currently serves as a Ballet Mistress for Carolina Ballet right here in Raleigh, NC.

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.✨

Every month, students in our most advanced division, Primary Ballet Prep, learn a new Step of the Month. One of our very favorites is arabesque. In arabesque, we hold onto the ballet barre and stand on one strong leg with the other leg reaching behind us, making a long line from our nose to our toes. When we feel ready to balance without holding onto the barre, we stretch our arms out like points of a shiny star.🌟

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.
