The Gayle Corkery School of Ballet opened in 1970. In 1972 Violette Verdy, as a representative of the School of American Ballet, selected the Gayle Corkery School of Ballet to be a part of the Ford Foundation National Program of Services to Ballet Students and Teachers operated by the School of American Ballet, the official school of the New York City Ballet. The program was designed to further the development of professional ballet instruction in the U.S. Since that time Gayle Corkery School of Ballet students have auditioned for and been accepted to professional ballet schools, opened their own schools and become directors of their own dance companies.

The Gayle Corkery School of Ballet invites all students in the metroplex to participate in its outstanding ballet training program. The school provides quality ballet instruction for all levels of advancement. From the youngest pre-ballet student to the aspiring professional, each student is guided through a curriculum designed to enhance both physical skill and the appreciation for the artistry of dance. The goal of the Gayle Corkery School of Ballet is to provide a firm foundation for each dancer to attain his or her full potential through a combination of the highest quality training and exciting performance opportunities.
