Welcome to Arkansas Academy of Dance
Established in 2000, Arkansas Academy of Dance is a premier training institute in classical ballet. Our service comes in partnership with Arkansas Festival Ballet. Our objective is simple: high caliber training with a focus on our students and their progress. We guide each student’s development with an approved curriculum, appropriate teaching techniques and choreography. Our program promotes students to pursue the discipline of dance with focus, diligence and consistency. Our mission is to educate children in the art of classical ballet. Our desire to share formal training encourages students to meet new goals through their commitment, intelligence and hard work. Our faculty strives to ensure that students receive the highest standard of dance training. Through each student's enjoyment and comprehension of dance, they will build character; gain self-esteem and discipline of the mind and body. We hope this knowledge and experience will guide and assist them in achieving great things. From our nurturing environment, students will form a love for the art of ballet. We believe that each young artist’s experience with Arkansas Academy of Dance will be influential in his or her lives and future. Tuition Tuition payments may be made by the month, semester or year.
