Our goal is to make classical ballet and contemporary dance accessible to any talented child with a dream of being a professional dancer. Small classes, taught by renowned professionals, ensure that each student is given the personal attention and instruction needed to reach their ultimate potential.
GBA is a great school for the serious student who has dreams of pursuing a career in ballet. The teachers are wonderful, the classes are small and the students receive a lot of individual attention. In the few years that we have been part of the GBA family, I have seen a dramatic improvement in my daughter’s technique. The students learn from faculty trained in the Vaganova style, all of whom have had illustrious careers as dancers. There are also very talented guest teachers who visit the school, and a number of exciting performance opportunities throughout the year. I highly recommend GBA to any dancer who is committed to hard work and has a love of classical ballet.
I have grown so much in Greenwich Ballet Academy as a dancer, and as a person. The teachers are exceptional, and help you improve every day, giving you confidence in your technique and artistry. In Greenwich Ballet Academy everybody is supportive, and I am so happy to be a part of this extraordinary school.
The teachers at GBA all have a passion for ballet and they take great joy in imparting that to their students. My son has had a great experience and has developed both as a dancer and a person with discipline and determination.
“Since beginning GBA two years ago, our daughter has made tremendous gains from a technical perspective. However, as a parent observing our daughter acquire growth in her confidence on and off stage – we have noticed that this has carried over to all other areas in her young life. This has been the greatest gift she has received from GBA.”
Greenwich Ballet Academy offers an amazing program. The teachers are professional and give valuable corrections to strengthen and improve my technique. The environment is friendly, but also professional, for everyone works very hard to put together performances, with different repertoire each year. I have learned unique and valuable lessons, in life and in ballet, that I couldn’t have experienced anywhere else.
“My daughter thoroughly enjoys attending the GBA summer intensive, she loves the rigor and the progression she makes by attending on a daily basis.”
“My daughter entered ballet largely to gain strength and coordination. Now, she carries herself with such poise and her technique is immediately recognized by professionals as having a flawless foundation.”
“Since coming to GBA 4 years ago I have been able to strengthen my Vaganova technique and have had the opportunity to compete in the Youth America Grand Prix competition. While at GBA I also have had the amazing opportunity to teach the Adaptive Dance class. I have grown and matured not only as a dancer but as an individual through my experiences here.”
I have been at student at GBA for almost 8 years! I love GBA. The teachers are disciplined but I feel that they really care about helping me improve towards all of my goals. I also love the friendship I have with the other students. It’s a very competitive world I know, but at GBA, we support each other in every way.
As we were moving to the area, we learned about Greenwich Ballet Academy from an international network of teachers specializing in the Vaganova technique. Happily GBA has lived up to its reputation with strong teaching, challenging but manageable practice schedules, and various performance opportunities. Most importantly the atmosphere at GBA is encouraging and welcoming with the dancers genuinely supportive of each other.
