Why take classes at Amherst Ballet?

Because you'll get top-quality dance instruction

As clarified in its mission statement, Amherst Ballet is committed to quality dance education. Led by Artistic Director, Madeleine Bonn, who served as a principal dancer for José Mateo Ballet Theatre for 14 years, our knowledgeable and well-experienced faculty all devote themselves to providing their students with high-level technical instruction and supportive care.

Because you can dance in a safe and welcoming environment

True to its mission of building a diverse and inclusive community of dancers and dance enthusiasts, Amherst Ballet has been offering a friendly, communal environment to its students for years and many of its alumni consider the school as their second home. 

Even under the current situation with the pandemic still rampant in society, Amherst Ballet is able to provide its students with a place where they can dance and have fun with their friends safely. The school has taken various safety measures, including lowering the enrollment limits, frequent disinfection, temperature check at the door, and requiring everybody to wear a mask all the time. With these measures and two spacious studios in which keeping safe distance is easy, students can rest assured that their safety is not being compromised at Amherst Ballet. 

Because you'll be a part of the local art history

Amherst Ballet has existed in the town of Amherst for half a century. During that time, the school has collaborated on many occasions with local musicians, poets, writers, and other artists and produced original shows that contributed significantly to the art scene of Pioneer Valley including “Emily of Amherst” as shown left. Students have had meaningful experiences by participating in AB’s public performances throughout the history of the school.
