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."
