At the Academy of Ballet and Dance Arts (ABDA), we’re dedicated to providing quality, professional dance and ballet instruction to students of all skill and age levels – pre-school to adult – building a solid foundation in classical ballet while fostering a love of dance.
ABDA ballet classes are carefully designed, based on the Royal Academy of Dance method with a focus on progressive development rather than age group, allowing the dancer to progress in stages. When classes are implemented through safe and correct instruction, children, whose bodies are not yet fully developed, are protected from the damage that can result from poor teaching.
The staff at the Academy of Ballet & Dance Arts works continuously to improve and preserve the integrity and standards of classical ballet while instilling a love of dance and the arts. Our instructors provide clear, sound dance education with a professional approach that promotes discipline, dedication and personal achievement. Young students attending ABDA classes benefit artistically, educationally and socially – life lessons that extend far beyond the achievements gained in classical ballet training.
We offer opportunity to advance in class levels to pre-professional, both for the more serious student and for personal achievement. And we welcome students seeking ballet instruction to enhance and expand training in theatre, musical theatre, and other dance forms.
Academy of Ballet & Dance Arts classes consist of various dance disciplines, including:
