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’s Summer Sessions and Intensives are an ideal way to accelerate the building of skills, strength and stamina during the summer months. We invite new and visiting students to experience our Vaganova-based program and work under the leadership of our world-class faculty and alongside our motivated and welcoming full-time students.
“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.”
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.
“GBA has brought a level of rigor to my son’s ballet training that surpassed my expectations. The expertise of the GBA faculty along with their high standards have made my son a better dancer and his goal of being a professional dancer is now within reach.”
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.
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.
We have been part of the GBA family since my daughter was 2 years old, and we can’t imagine being anywhere else. Year over year there has been marked improvement in my daughter’s performance and she has grown in her confidence, poise and flexibility. The teachers at GBA truly care about her progress and continue to inspire her to be the best she can be.
I am so happy that I joined GBA this year, it is the best training I have ever had. It is such a comfortable environment, all of the people are so sweet and the teachers are beyond fabulous. The older levels are amazing and inspiring, not just with their gorgeous dancing but their humble, hardworking and kind attitudes towards others. I feel so privileged to have the opportunity to dance in the spring showcase with everyone.
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.
“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.”
“My daughter thoroughly enjoys attending the GBA summer intensive, she loves the rigor and the progression she makes by attending on a daily basis.”
