Tutu School Scottsdale is a boutique ballet school for all children ages 18 months - 8 years.

Operating as usual


We absolutely loving the attitude from this little dancer. The Monday feels are real today 😅


Hoppy Easter! May your day be filled with joy, laughter, and lots of chocolate eggs! 🐰🐣


This is something we tell ourselves quite often! We’re always feeling inspired by role models like 💛


Tutu School exists to make space in the world for confident creativity and the pure joy that comes from finding oneself in music and movement 💛🩰


Dancing through the day, twirling all the way! 🩰✨


We are so proud that Tutu School is women-owned, women-led, and women-founded! During Women's History Month, we want to take a moment to shine a spotlight on some incredible women who have made dance history! 🎀🩰


We believe that thoughtfully exposing children at the earliest possible age to creativity, movement, and music can only lead to good things and that dancing out stories not only exercises little bodies but also nurtures big imaginations 🎶 💕

In our Tutu Toddlers division, classes involve caregiver participation. Caregivers can use the opportunity to take a break from distractions and really be in the moment!


Our March Ballet Book Club book is “Big” by Vashti Harrison! 📚

We’re so excited to share this empowering story for Women’s History Month. “Big” traces a child’s journey to self-love and shows the power of words to both hurt and heal. 💕🥰


Did you know membership at Tutu School is ongoing? 💕 You can enroll your little one anytime! We love welcoming familiar and new dancers to Tutu School classes each and every week.


A friendly reminder that Tutu School Scottsdale and Arcadia will be on Spring Break 🌺 from March 11-17th during this time no in-person classes will be held.

We will resume twirling on March 18, 2024! 🩰


Did you know performing arts like ballet strengthens problem-solving and critical thinking skills?! ✨

This happens when children start to ask themselves how they express a particular feeling through movement. 🩰 Learning to make choices and decisions will certainly carry over into their education and other parts of life!

This is just one of the many benefits of classes and performances at Tutu School! Our spring Bravo Bash registration is OPEN.

Don’t wait to sign up to see them SHINE on the stage with other classmates.

Welcome to the ABC’s of Ballet! This is the third in a series of posts teaching ballet vocabulary to the masses 🔤✨ So let’s keep learning with G, H, and I! Save this post to collect the whole alphabet and study at home with your dancer!

⭐ Grand plié: A basic ballet movement where the dancer fully bends their knees. A demi-plié is the same thing, but a half bend!

🎼 Harp: Harps have played an important role in the development of classical ballet music. You can even hear it being used in the music of “The Nutcracker” to represent the magical elements of the story!

🇮🇹 Italy: Ballet originated in Italy as far back as the 15th Century, in the Italian Renaissance courts.

Welcome to the ABC’s of Ballet! This is the second in a series of posts teaching ballet vocabulary to the masses 🔤✨ So let’s keep learning with D, E, and F! Save this post to collect the whole alphabet and study at home with your dancer!

⭐ Demi-plié: A basic ballet movement where the dancer bends their knees halfway while keeping their heels on the floor. A grand plié is the same thing, but a full bend!

🤸 Extension: This refers to the ability of a dancer to lengthen and stretch their limbs, particularly their legs and arms, to create beautiful lines and shapes while dancing!

🩰 Frappé: In French, frappé means “to strike.” We strongly, yet gently, strike the ball of the foot against the floor like we are trying to kick up fairy dust.


Are you wondering when barre work comes into play at Tutu School? We start to briefly introduce the barre starting in our Exploring Ballet B/C class division for 4-5 year olds!* As your dancer moves on to Primary Ballet Prep, we start working on barre, center work, and choreography! View more information on our class divisions at the link in our bio.

*If there are any 5-year-olds present in our Exploring Ballet A-C classes, we may introduce the barre then, too.


At Tutu School, we encourage unleashing your imagination 🌈 It’s a joy to witness the playful energy of our young dancers during and after class! 🩰

Welcome to the ABC’s of Ballet! This is the first in a series of posts teaching ballet vocabulary to the masses 🔤✨ So let’s kick it off with A, B, and C! Save this post to collect the whole alphabet and study at home with your dancer!

⭐ Arabesque: This is one of our favorite positions because we look like sparkly stars! In arabesque, we hold onto the ballet barre and stand on one strong leg with the other leg reaching behind us, making a long line from our nose to our toes. When we feel ready to balance without holding onto the barre, we stretch our arms out like points of a shiny star.

✴️ Barre: A stationary handrail used as a support and aid during warm-up exercises and practice routines.

💫 Chassé: A step that involves one foot chasing the other. It is a traveling step where one foot steps to the side, the other foot closes to it, and then the first foot steps again, either to the side or to the front or back, depending on the choreography.

What are classes like week to week? 🌷

Classes at Tutu School follow a consistent structure each week, but although much of the class content remains the same in every class, there is also a great deal of variation from week to week within that established structure.

Children benefit tremendously from the security they gain when there is a sense of ritual to what they do, and their skill level evolves more evenly when there is consistency in their practice.

That being said, we always work to keep the activities we do in class fresh and exciting, so there will be plenty of new mixed in among the familiar! ✨🩰✨


Did you know parents and siblings are welcome to watch classes at Tutu School?

! We do ask, however, that all observers respect the cozy atmosphere of our little boutique school, and remain quiet during class time.

It’s important to us to maintain a focused learning environment at all times! 🩰🌟
