I think the key is diet. And I know that you have cut out the obvious things, but this is a really tough problem to solve - it's mostly genetic, and everyone struggles with specific areas. And unless things are perfect, then it's really difficult to change. Now, your exercise routine is pretty comprehensive, but it might be that there's just too much high load stuff like ballet and the gym work, and that may be affecting your ability to lose weight in those specific areas because you're bulking up rather than losing or toning. For example, the squats and lunges will help develop muscle, which might well be offsetting any fat loss in the areas you're most worried about!
Because it's so complex, I would honestly consider seeing a dietician and making sure you're eating well all the time - it's not simply about cutting out on certain things. Also, if you're at the gym, you might want to consider seeing someone to help refine that programme. I think you're on the right track, and there are just small adjustments that you need to consider and then you'll start to achieve. But my advice is to focus on fitness - get fit and allow the other stuff to happen as a consequence of fitness.
