Academy Ballet School of Annapolis (ABSA) follows the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) Syllabus for classical ballet training and offers the finest teaching curriculum for classical ballet, character dance, and lyrical free movement dance. Our mission is to encourage, foster, and provide for every child, regardless of age or ability, the joy of movement and a love of dance.
ABSA is directed and staffed only by RAD trained and certified teachers. We believe that consistent faculty and professional excellence in the teaching of classical ballet provide optimal student development in ballet and all dance forms. Mature, experienced faculty who are committed both to teaching classical ballet and to the development of young dancers from preschool through adulthood are, and always will be, the cornerstone of the ABSA program.
Our studio is located at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, a community-based fine arts center in historic downtown Annapolis.
