Studio Facility

Bristol Ballet's studio is located in the historical district of Bristol, Virginia at 519 State Street, in a building located just across the street from the Paramount Center for the Arts. The building itself is a beautiful example of historic craftsmanship and is full of character.

The two spacious studios located on the second floor features an elevated hardwood floor, permanent barres and mirrors, a state of the art sound system, and a piano for live accompaniment on special occasions located in Studio One.

The lobby area located on the first floor is warm and inviting for parents and other guests, with windows looking out on Historic State Street. There is a separate dressing area for students to change into their dancewear and to store their personal items while they are in class.

Several shops and restaurants are within walking distance of the studio. The Studio is located in the heart of downtown Bristol.
