Building confidence in body, mind and spirit through the culture of classical ballet.

The Academy of Ballet and Etiquette gives young children positive and memorable experiences with classical culture. Our 30-minute ballet classes occur on the campuses of the schools they already attend, making the offer convenient for parents and comforting for the child. Our curriculum has been designed around developmentally appropriate and adapted for children up to second grade. In a year, we dance through the stories of up to 20 different ballets, practicing the steps, techniques, and manners already present in the ballet and covering relevant information such as the ballet genre and the composers’ names. Further enticement to learn about the ballets can be found in our homeschool education blog and assorted at-home teaching tools.
