Excellence and innovation in American dance training since 1914


The dance department of the Peabody Preparatory is one of the oldest continuously operating dance training centers in the United States. Starting with the first class in eurhythmics offered in 1914, and throughout its remarkable life span, Preparatory Dance has pioneered new dance forms, mounted numerous collaborative projects, partnered with prominent figures in 20th and 21st-century American dance, and produced accomplished professional dancers, choreographers, directors, and teachers.

Under the leadership of Franki Graham and an outstanding faculty, Preparatory Dance is keeping in step with the progression of American dance into the 21st century and remains committed to offering high-quality dance training for students of all levels age 3 to adult; presenting imaginative professional-level performances; offering pre-professional ballet and modern dance summer intensives; partnering with our community through master classes, seminars, workshops, and other dance events – many offered free of charge; and training and supporting male dancers through the ground-breaking Estelle Dennis/Peabody Dance Training Program for Boys.
