The Gobel School of Dance, formerly the Maryse Gobel Ballet Academy, was founded by Maryse Gobel 40 years ago. Katie Parr Smith is now Artistic Director and works alongside Business Manager, Kelly Young.
The focus of the Gobel School of Dance is the quality of our ballet, jazz/contemporary, hip hop & tap instruction. We perform a classical ballet with a pre-show showcasing our other dance styles at the end of each year while also continuing to instruct our dancers in technique, discipline and poise.
