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.
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.
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.
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.
“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.”
After participating in other local dance programs, my daughters came to GBA because they were interested in pursuing more rigorous ballet training. At GBA, students receive world class training from passionate, committed teachers who impart their love of the art of ballet. Discipline, confidence and teamwork carry over into their lives outside the studio. I am thankful that my girls can receive this caliber of training without traveling to New York City.
“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.”
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.
“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.”
