Through careful development and attention to the American Ballet Theater curriculum, our teachers implement instruction that is designed to produce dancers with both expressiveness and clear classical lines.

Students are placed into a specific level by their ability & technique. Placement auditions are held in June and September. New students  will take a trial placement class arranged through the front office, to determine  their level. All Academy students are required to take the minimum number of ballet classes per week in their level.

 The required classes for each level are listed below. If your child’s passion is dance, then it is recommended adding extra classes to give them an advantage in the dance world.
