Classical Ballet Academy offers professional training in Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap, Contemporary, Modern Dance, Lyrical, Hip Hop, and Leaps and Turns. Students are carefully led through each level where they are instructed in an encouraging and pleasant atmosphere. Emphasis is placed on individual instruction. Through the dance experience, students enjoy the activity, while learning technique and self-discipline. While technique is strongly emphasized, so is movement and self-expression. There is a strong feeling at our school, that all of these areas must be developed together.
