The Academy of Classical Ballet - CALIFORNIA offers a unique setting where the training of professional classical ballet technique is the sole focus of what we do. Our background of over 20 years in the ballet industry and long history of producing world-class dancers places the Academy at the top of Bay Area ballet schools.

This track record, combined with our Vaganova, Royal Academy of Dance, and American Ballet Theatre certified training is truly rare, and lies at core of what sets us apart from the majority of local ballet institutions.

We focus intently on teaching students proper ballet technique that is hard to get from other dance schools, as many attempt to function as an "all-in-one" dance factory - offering a broad curriculum, but often leaving students without a solid dance foundation in any one discipline. The Academy Of Classical Ballet-CALIFORNIA'S main goal is to offer high-level classical ballet training in a truly rewarding, disciplined, but incredibly fun atmosphere that provides all of our students a great foundation for whatever their future goals may be.

A Curriculum Designed To Suit Individual Needs

We understand that not everybody learns the same way, or at the same pace. A one-size-fits-all approach is not what we are about, as our goal is to keep students healthy and dancing for a long time to come - while furthering the enjoyment of the amazing art of ballet and dance as a whole.

Students are thoroughly evaluated and placed in the appropriate level to ensure training is set at a pace that will yield the most progress, promote dancer safety, while remaining challenging and enjoyable.

Exciting, Year-Round Performance Opportunities

Students are offered several opportunities throughout the year to perform and showcase their skills to an ever grateful and always growing audience. From seasonal shows to our Summer Intensive; these extraordinary opportunities will aid in the development of all of our students.

We are frequently invited to be guest artists in outside productions and are always looking to perform as often as possible. You can read some of what past parents and students have to say about the academy for yourself here.
