At Amherst Ballet, we train dancers of all ages, backgrounds, body types, and levels of experience, and offer a comprehensive dance education that draws both from traditional and contemporary schools. We strive to create an environment that nurtures each student’s creativity, talents, and well-being, while at the same time giving them the tools and training to become world-class artists. Our goal for each student is not necessarily the pursuit of “perfection,” but rather the achievement of fearlessness, joy, and confidence in her or his unique abilities.
Amherst Ballet is committed to teaching pure classical ballet technique, uncluttered by stylistic mannerisms or outdated methods, while fostering self-confidence and joy in self-expression. Our diverse faculty of teachers draws from Vaganova method, Balanchine technique, RAD, Bournonville, and ABT Schools to give students the widest possible palette of artistry and technical dexterity. Our curriculum is designed to offer students a rich, well-rounded education that will include: Creative Movement, Classical Ballet Technique, Pointework, Pre-Pointe, Pas de Deux, Music Comprehension/Appreciation, Contemporary/Modern Dance, Hip Hop, and Nutrition Education.
