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
[11/09/20] Happy Monday! Hope you all have a wonderful week!

Classes are drop-in, no registration needed. In-person and via Zoom. (email: [email protected] for zoom link)
$20 for single class, class cards available. Face mask required.

verilymag.com 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.
