Welcome to the Ballet Academy of Charleston!

THE place in Charleston for classical ballet training for children and adults. Established in 1993, BAC continues to inspire young people and foster their love of the arts.



“I believe a true dance education encompasses much more than simply learning the mechanics of dance. With a solid foundation in ballet, a student is poised to achieve anything. I believe that performing is not only the joy of the movement, but it includes the mind, body, and spirit of the performer.”
