It is with great pleasure and anticipation that I welcome you to the Shoreline Ballet! I am proud to have the opportunity to provide the Shoreline community with a quality, centrally located center for dance education where students of all ages and abilities can come together and experience the joy of movement.


Having lived in Guilford, with my growing family for the past 6 years I came to realize that the Shoreline was in need of a center for dance. The moment I stepped into the expansive 4500 square foot condominium with cathedral ceilings, I knew this was it! Our summer has been spent renovating and constructing a space that will inspire our students. We have two beautiful new dance studios with plans to complete the third studio as we grow. Each studio is equipped with state of the art sprung floors, new Rosco Marley, barres and mirrors. Students and families can enjoy the convenience of our spacious lobby, large viewing windows, two bathrooms and a large dressing room. We also have our own large parking lot located just outside our 3rd floor entrance which can be accessed through the Guilford Commons shopping center.


The mission of Shoreline Ballet is to provide students with the highest quality dance education and an environment where every student is valued and respected. I am thrilled to share with you the amazing faculty, enriching programs and inspiring space.


Please join me in celebrating our inaugural year and come experience the joy of dance!
