There are many benefits to training at Ballet Austin Academy, for both the student and family.
  • Curriculum Director, Toni Bravo, utilizes her 25 years of teaching experience when managing the content and delivery of this carefully crafted curriculum.
  • This program is a prelude to formal ballet instruction and introduces children to music and movement through a structured progression that emphasizes creativity and group interaction.
  • The Pre-Ballet syllabus is introduced at a time when fine and gross motor skills are becoming more refined. By introducing students to the basic shapes, positions, postures and traditions of classical ballet, the Pre-Ballet curriculum enhances both cognitive and physical development at this important time.
  • At the end of the School Year, Pre-Ballet 1 students participate in In-studio Spring Presentations and Pre-Ballet 2 & 3 students participate in the Academy Spring Presentation.
  • All Academy students train in the same state-of-the-art facility as Ballet Austin's professional dancers and often are able to view rehearsals of upcoming performances.
Other benefits include:
  • 20% discount on single tickets to Ballet Austin performances at The Long Center, including The Nutcracker.
  • Discounts to Butler Center for Dance & Fitness classes and workshops for parents.
  • Be Well Talks specifically designed for Academy parents and students.
  • The opportunity to learn more about Ballet Austin through a guided tour of our facility offered exclusively to Academy families in the fall and spring.
