The one thing that can solve most of our problems is dancing.

ANAHEIM BALLET SCHOOL

Anaheim Ballet School’s training methodology is based on the Russian, French, and Italian schools making what the Rosenbergs call, “truly the American method, the best of everything!” A strong kinetic methodology, heavily influenced by movement analyst Joanna Kneeland, is predominant in all classes drawing from the principles of physics and the belief that ballet is a natural system of movement.

Classes are offered to all ages and training emphasizes developing strong technique, promoting a healthy lifestyle, inspiring artistry, building good character and instilling a sense of community and purpose through the arts. ABS partners with Fairmont Private Schools and Chapman University [students receive credits for participating in AB performances] in order to fulfill students’ academic requirements.

Not all ABS students go on to professional performing careers, although many do. Students may carry on as dance educators, pursue backstage careers or venture into dance journalism. Regardless, all become informed and supportive dance audience members!

Classes are focused on classical ballet, but ABS offers contemporary dance styles which are considered integral to a dancer’s full education. Students attend from one to fifteen classes per week, according to age, career, and health objectives.

Private coaching is beneficial to help students over plateaus, develop variations for performance or competition, address individual concerns, and for additionally personalized instruction.

AB School is a vendor with Compass Charter, Epic Charter, Excel Academy, iLEAD Exploration, Inspire Charter, Sky Mountain Charter, Summit Academy, and Valiant Academy.  Interested in ABS becoming a vendor for your student's charter school?
