ABS offers classes for all ages, skills, and levels
mommy & me
The Mommy & Me classes are a way for the parents to connect with their children on a different level with the arts of dance. No experience is required, and children can start as soon as when they are 2 years old.
Pre-Ballet / Ballet 1 / ballet 2 / ballet kids
A program designed for ages 3-6. This program is once a week and takes the basics of ballet technique, giving the children a fun and educational class while working on motor skills.
Level 1 - Level 8
These classes are offered for students age 7+ years old until they are ready to step into the Pre-Professional level. Their focus is shifted from general preparatory technique to more specific ballet movements and vocabulary.
This program provides the training necessary to succeed in the professional dance world. Students are expected to act as ambassadors for ABS. Enrollment in this program is by audition only.
Modern & Contemporary
Modern dance uses a greater range of body movements by the use of energy, breath phrasing, fall and rebound contraction and release. Humphrey-Limon, Cunningham, and Release are among the techniques used. Improvisation is also integrated into this class.
We feel it is important for our students to be exposed to different styles of teaching as it makes the dancer more well-rounded.
Teen Ballet is a dynamic dance educational experience that inspires unique artistry and expert technical training. Young dancers are given a unique opportunity to encourage the artist within.
Every year, our advanced students audition for the DanzEnsemble, a group that learns innovative, modern ballet choreography and presents it at outdoor performances and competitions.
ABS is committed to presenting and creating works of extraordinary artistry that are of the highest quality. Students learn choreographic techniques and processes, and apply them to a theme chosen by the school.
Our Adult Ballet classes offer you the opportunity to stay in shape and have fun learning ballet. With ballet, you will improve your strength and flexibility, as well as your musicality and coordination.
Contemporary & Partnering Workshops
These are offered throughout the year. We encourage every dancer to take advantage of this opportunity to study with a guest teacher who has exceptional credentials and provides our dancers with the opportunity to learn new and different techniques. Partnering workshops are open to advanced students only.
Master Classes will be offered periodically through the year.
