She also belongs to a scout group that meets on Saturday afternoons and participates in different camps⛺️ and nature excursions🚣‍♀️🌿🐇.

Classical ballet for children ages 3-18, and adults (beginner-advanced). Founded in 1993, Ballet Academy of Charleston has been teaching serious classical ballet to children and adults in the Greater Charleston area.

All class levels are taught by professional dancers, in the Russian style. We believe in hands-on corrections and expect our students to follow typical ballet etiquette. While we don't expect every student to seek a career in ballet, we give them the foundation to do so. Interested students can participate in our yearly spring performance, which is always a story ballet, not a recital. We do not allow any drama or unhealthy competition in our school.

Mission: Our mission is to teach serious classical ballet in a nurturing and positive environment.

Operating as usual

Audrey Hepburn’s Favorite ‘Workout’ Should Be Reason Enough for You to Try It

There are many reasons to join our adult ballet community! This interesting article lists the most important ones.
We offer classes for all levels:

Fun fact: Ballet Academy of Charleston's founder, Mara Meir, was Audrey Hepburn's ballet classmate for a while, before moving on to become a professional dancer.

#BalletAcademyofCharleston #BalletWestAshley #balletforadults But here are all the reasons why you should take up ballet as an adult.

At Ballet Academy of Charleston, we understand that you might hesitate to commit to a full semester of classes,
not knowing what the future holds, and whether studios
will have to close again.
This is why we offer teenagers classes (intermediate/advanced) with the flexibility to pay per class, per week, or per month, without committing to more than what you're comfortable with.
