Ballet Academy in Lincoln Park, founded in 1998, offers a unique and fun dance school for children with top professional, caring and energetic teachers. The goal is to offer students unmatched excellence at all ability, interest and age levels from "Small Steps" through the Vaganova curriculum of dance education to our teen/adult classes. The program builds confidence, coordination, posture, memory, concentration and an appreciation for art and music. It is rewarding to watch the dancers grow, at any age, with higher achievement, and help them feel more confident about themselves.

Ballet is a universe of the imagination, a place of magic and enchantment, beauty and romance. Its many worlds vibrate with graceful dancers, glorious music, and sumptuous costumes.
