Celebrating our 57th Year of Dance!

The American Academy of Ballet, under the direction of Maris Battaglia, has celebrated 57 years of excellence in 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 guidance can work together in a warm and caring atmosphere to provide positive experiences that will last a lifetime."​
