American Academy of Ballet


Celebrating Our 52nd Year of Dance!

The American Academy of Ballet, under the direction of Maris Battaglia, is celebrating its 52nd year of dance. More than 147 students have gone on to achieve prominent careers across the States, Canada and Europe in dance companies, television and the Broadway stage. We are proud to continue that tradition throughout the many years to come! The Academy's success and continued philosophy over the years is that "love and positive reinforcement can work together in a warm and caring atmosphere to provide experiences that will last a lifetime."

We are located on West Klein Road, in Williamsville NY, in the Dash's plaza next door to La Porta's Pizzeria. There are entrances to the plaza from Plaza Drive, Hopkins Road and West Klein Road. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us.


There are spaces throughout the parking lot for American Academy of Ballet parking as well as the other companies in the plaza. Please refrain from parking next to the curb directly in front of our building unless you are momentarily stopping to pick up or drop off your child.


Dance classes may be delayed or cancelled due to weather. We follow the Williamsville and Clarence School District school closings. Please check on channels 2, 4 and 7 (WGRZ, WIVB, WKBW) to see if the studio is closed on weather-permitting days.
