We are now accepting enrollments from new and returning students for the fall term, which begins on September 12. Click here for details about classes and placement. To find out more about our program, see our syllabus, review our faculty, and look over our overview and frequently asked questions.

The Acton School of Ballet is a school of classical ballet offering a syllabus ballet program for ages 5 through high school. We also offer Fairy Tale Dance for 3 year-olds, First Steps for 4 year-olds, as well as jazz, modern dance, choreography, variations, ballet history and ballet conditioning.

ASB serves over 30 communities, including Acton, Concord, Stow, Westford, Boxborough, Carlisle, Harvard, Littleton, Maynard, Bolton, Subury, Groton and many more. We have programs suitable for serious pre-professional students, recreational dancers, or those simply wanting a sound education in a beautiful art form. You can see our current class schedule here.

New Offering - Fairy Tale Dance for 3-year Olds

We are accepting registrations for our newest addition to the lower school syllabus. Fairy Tale Dance for 3-year olds introduces basic ballet movement through interactive games and group exercises, targeted toward the exuberance and attention span of our youngest students! Each 45-minute class includes the reading of a short movement-happy fairy tale or simplified version of one of the great story ballets. Then a treasure chest full of relevant props (think tutus and fairy wands, musical instruments, sparkly wings, etc.) is opened and students get to use these props to choreograph a magical dance together. Small classes taught by kind and focused teachers provide a compassionate and creative experience!

Open Adult Dance Classes

In addition to our syllabus classes, the Acton School of Ballet offers open classes for teenagers and adults. Classes are $15 each, or $145 for a 10-class card (valid for one year). There is no advanced registration required - just drop in and dance!

Open adult classes resume on Tuesday, September 13. For additional information visit our Adult Ballet page.

Begining Ballet Classes

Acton School of Ballet offers a beginning ballet class for teens and adults. The class is also great for adults returning to ballet after a long absence. Our beginning ballet concentrates on fundamentals of placement, foot and leg development, and carriage of the upper body and arms.

The 90-minute class meets once a week on Sundays at 11:00 a.m. Curious? Interested? Contact ASB Administrator Melissa Morris at (978) 263-6572 for more details.
