American Academy of Ballet (AAB)

The Center for Performing Arts Dance Studio is associated with the American Academy of Ballet.

Through this performance curriculum all of our ballet dancers learn basic through advanced variations of ballet from September through January of each year.

Each ballet student is encouraged to embrace the opportunity to be tested and to achieve a certificate of excellence for each level, beginner through advanced. Students progress and excel through a level each year to create a stunning portfolio of achievement.

This very positive program has also allowed our dancers to take classes in New York at the Alvin Ailey Dance Studio with world renowned teachers each March.

American Academy of Ballet Performance Awards are held the end of each January. All ballet students with two years of experience are encouraged to participate. Each year a student participates they receive a stronger sense of their own strength and advancement in ballet. This year's judge Gina Chiavelli complimented the students on their fine technique, joy of expression and a well rehearsed performance.

Many of our students who have performed will be traveling to New York City's Alvin Ailey Dance Theater Studios to take classes in ballet, jazz, drama and character dance with world famous master teachers in March.
