Ashley Ballet Arts Academy - About - Golden Valley, MN
Instructors help your student achieve their full potential.

Six years ago, Ashley Ballet Arts Academy (ABAA) was established to provide exceptional training in ballet and its related arts, to students of all ages and abilities. Our mission has always been to enrich lives through the art and joy of dance education --- whether a student aspires to become a professional dancer, or whether they pursue a different career, our doors are open to everyone with the drive to learn.

ABAA's philosophy is that every student should receive an excellent dance education, giving them the chance to develop a lifelong appreciation of the art and joy of dance. We take pride in curating a nurturing and comfortable, yet disciplined and stimulating studio culture where each child receives not only excellent ballet and dance training, but also a fostering of their inner self.

Students will find a complete ballet program at ABAA, crafted to serve the earliest pre-dance level starting at three years old, through pre-professional students and adults. We are proud to offer instruction tailored to suit every age and level, ensuring that there is truly something for every dancer. The school follows a well-developed syllabus for each class, influenced by the Vaganova method of ballet technique.
Each of our faculty members is an experienced teacher with a professional dance career and/or a formal degree in Dance.
