Ballet Class

 

The British Dancing Academy is dedicated to bringing out the best in its students through training in classical ballet technique and discipline. Emphasizing technique and discipline, the school seeks to further artistic achievement and character growth of its students through examination and our year end performance. While they build strength, grace, and musicality, students develop an eagerness to work and gain self-confidence that will serve them well throughout their lives.  The Academy features a professional faculty, studio pianists, and provides opportunities that are not only exciting and fun, but also a powerful motivation to excel.

    Hi, my daughter just turned 10 and has taken several years of ballet from a teacher that was trained there that highly recommended your program. Can you send me cost and schedule information for the level that my daughter would be in? Thanks!

    Hi

    My daughter will be 4yrs old on August 9th. Do you have a Saturday class I can bring her to, to try and see if this is something she really wants to do? She keeps asking to do ballet, but I have no experience with it and she loves dancing and music.

    Thank you
    Kendra

    Hello! My daughter is 13 years old and has had 10 years of dance experience, but hasn’t focused much on ballet, which she loves the most. We recently left our old studio and she hasn’t danced for about a year. She wants to start again and I was wondering what classes she could join? Also, do you offer stretch and strength classes? Thank you!
