The Ontario School of Ballet (OSB) was founded in 1979 by Executive Director Sarah Lockett, to provide high quality dance instruction for students of all ages, in an inspirational environment. The school is committed to nurturing students from recreational to pre-professional levels of dance, by developing skills through expert programming. Ms. Lockett’s 37 years of experience has guided thousands of young dancers from the basics to professional careers.

OSB is one of Canada’s leading dance training institutions. All classes are taught by expert accredited dance educators. Limited class sizes allows for individual attention and guidance. The school is committed to fostering the development of disciplined, self-confident students, who will grow from their training, whether their goal is to achieve a career in dance, or apply the knowledge they have gained to other professions.

OSB is a registered charitable organization.
