MSB is proud to celebrate its 46th SEASON!
Founded in 1971 by director Paula K. Shiff, MSB is a school for the aspiring professional and for people who just love to dance. We offer a variety of classes for young children, teens, and adults.

Our graded BALLET PROGRAM ranges from Creative Movement all the way to pointe and repertoire work. We also offer other related disciplines such as Stretch & Strength, Modern, and Pilates. In addition, we teach partner dances such as Salsa, Tango, Ballroom, Latin, and Swing! Learn more about our full range of classes:

 
MSB is home to the NORTH SHORE CIVIC BALLET COMPANY, founded in 1974 by Paula K. Shiff and Florence C. Whipple. We are also a proud member of the North Shore Dance Alliance.

Dance enriches all of life, teaching discipline, grace, self-control, musicality,
and other qualities that carry over into all professions. We learn
to dance
and we learn
from dance. We celebrate the elegance and power and range
of the human form, the beauty of storytelling, the mastery of the musician,
the visual artist, and the sculptor.
