The proposals for a new development at the Tramway performing arts venue on the southside of the city were approved by the council's planning committee.
Scottish Ballet plans to create its new premises by building on an unused part of the site and by renovating sections of the existing building.
The premises will have three large rehearsal studios and fitness areas.
Cindy Sughrue, executive producer of Scottish Ballet, said: "This is an important day for Scottish Ballet and it takes us a step closer to realising our ambition to create a fitting home for the company at Tramway.
"We are very excited about the potential for the future as the bespoke building will create a platform from which Scottish Ballet can fulfil its potential in so many different ways.
"Tramway is a leading arts venue in Glasgow's inner city and placing a large-scale producing company within a dynamic international arts centre and community resource will create a range of opportunities."
Patricia Ferguson, minister for culture, said the plans for the Tramway would enable Scottish Ballet to engage with the community and nurture new talent on a scale greater than has been previously possible.
