The ACADEMY OF CLASSICAL BALLET
An Academic Edge
The difference is clear; students who study dance have better problem solving skills, stronger creative thinking abilities and better grades than non-dancers. The Academy of Classical Ballet has meaningful academic content in each dance class at every level of training.
Our ballet curriculum was created with the help of medical experts specializing in dance, taught by instructors with more than twenty years of dance experience.
The Dancing Difference
Due to the unique training at the Academy, our dancers are accomplished artists who truly understand their craft. These dancers can do more than just 'show what they know'; they can explain it, illustrating their knowledge in great detail. Best of all, our students truly enjoy their dance experience.
Summer dance classes are a wonderful way for current dancers and prospective students to spend the summer. For the experienced Academy student, summer classes provide the opportunity to maintain technique. For new students, this allows the opportunity to "try out" dance, and see if the ACB is the dance school for them. Chances are, it will be.
All students will need to bring a water bottle, and should also have leather ballet slippers. Students enrolling for the dance year in fall will wish to follow dress code for their fall classes.
