Makaroff Youth Ballet

About the School

The Makaroff School of Ballet, owned by Jeanette Makaroff, is a classical ballet school located in downtown Appleton. The school offers ballet classes for students ages 5 and up during the academic season, with additional interim classes held in the summer. The Makaroff Youth Ballet (MYB) is a separate, nonprofit organization with official 501(c)(3) status. The company provides initial performance for young dancers who have reached the point in their studies where performance is indicated. Although many dancers in MYB began their training at the Makaroff School of Ballet, membership in MYB is not guaranteed to students of the Makaroff School of Ballet. A student needs to prove him/herself ready in many ways.
