Texas Youth Ballet is a 501(c)3 arts conservatory dedicated to providing high-quality, classical ballet training to all students in McKinney and the surrounding areas regardless of their ability to pay. The school began as one of the early members of the arts outreach program at the McKinney Performing Arts Center in historic downtown Mckinney. We now reside in McDonald Plaza, 2 miles north of downtown McKinney on McDonald Street.
TYB is known for its warm, family atmosphere, the excellence of its ballet training, the diversity of its student population, and the age-appropriate content of our performances.
TYB alumni have gone on to traineeships with professional ballet companies, work in professional entertainment in Theme parks and musical theatre productions.
TYB’s Artistic Director, Jennifer Dulin, founded the school to provide an avenue for local students to reach for their dreams of dancing professionally, while still maintaining a nurturing environment and affordable programs.
Some of our students drive great distances to experience TYB's training. It is not uncommon to see young professionals taking class with our students when they are in town.
