Welcome to Academy of Ballet Arts

At the Academy of Ballet Arts, we feel very privileged to work with your children and pass on to them the beauty and art of ballet.

We provide the highest caliber training from the beginning student to the professional, while developing confidence and self esteem in a caring, supportive environment.

We believe in teaching our students that with passion, discipline, and self-motivation they will be able to be successful in any career they choose to pursue.

We believe that training the mind is essential to effective training of the body.

We believe that experiencing the performing arts is a vital element in the
development and education of our children.

We extend a heartfelt welcome to you and your family!
-Mr. Jose Chavez and Miss Dana Nelson, Directors
