The instructors and staff of the Alameda Ballet Academy are dedicated to bringing quality classical dance education to the greater Alameda community. They seek to impart students with artistry, self expression, grace and musicality, while encouraging a love for the art of dance. In order to create a healthy and productive learning environment, we gently teach by using the principles of focus, discipline, physical fitness, critical thinking, teamwork and, most importantly, respect. It is our belief that the seeds of commitment to excellence can and should be planted at a very young age, while maintaining an inspired, playful, creative atmosphere. more...

ABA's 2014 Spring Recital was held on May 25th in Kofman Auditorium in Alameda. ABA students worked hard for months on their dances and loved sharing their accomplishments with you! Thank you to friends, family and supporters who came to the performance to support their dancers. The students did a fabulous job! Photos and DVDs will be available for delivery/purchase at www.dancedvdstore.com a few weeks after the show.
We would love to hold a boys only ballet class this summer! We have some talented boys in our classes but only a few of them stay on for any length of time. We believe a boys class would be a great way to attract and retain boys who want to explore dance. Please let us know if your son/grandson/nephew would be interested in something like this! Email with what day and time could work for your student this summer.

"My daughter couldn't be happier at ABA. Even when she is struggling to learn something new, I see a determination to conquer it. Every level will have its challenges and that determination will serve her well in all aspects of her life."
