Since 2000, Arkansas Academy of Dance has become established in the community as the premier training institute in classical ballet.  Our service comes in partnership with Arkansas Festival Ballet Performing Company.  Our goal is simple:  high caliber training with a focus on our students and their progress.  Our emphasis is placed on students’ progress with approved curriculum, appropriate teaching techniques and appropriate choreography. There are no expensive costumes for our families to purchase and through consistent training in the academy; students will become engaged in enriching opportunities.

Arkansas Academy of Dance is focused on the education of children in the discipline of classical ballet and traditional styles of dance with an offering of enriching performance opportunities.  Through their love of dance, young dancers will build character, gain self esteem and control of the mind and body.

Our professional faculty ensures that students receive the highest standard of dance training. This knowledge and experience will guide and assist them in achieving their goals. From our nurturing environment these students will form a love for the art of dance.

We believe that each young artist's experience in the Arkansas Academy of Dance will be influential in their lives and future. From preschool age children to college students, our faculty is geared to your dancer's goals.
