Ashley Ballet Arts Academy is a dance school where students of all ages and abilities receive exceptional training in ballet and its related arts. It is a nurturing and comfortable, yet disciplined and stimulating environment, where students can acquire a lifelong appreciation of the art and joy of dance. The school's philosophy is that every student should receive an excellent dance education whether they are to be a professional dancer, a university scholar, or any other member of society. This school is a place where each child receives excellent ballet and dance training, and a fostering of their inner self.
Our school provides a complete ballet program from the earliest pre-dance level starting at three years old, through pre-professional and adults. Instruction is offered at the recreational and pre-professional training level. 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 degree in Dance.
