The goal of the Ballet Academy of Texas is to provide quality, professional dance instruction for all ages. The primary focus is on classical ballet technique which provides a strong foundation for all other dance forms. Our goal for the recreational dancer is to gain self-confidence through the physical and mental accomplishments that come from positive dance instruction. The professional background of the directors and staff will provide the more serious student with the knowledge and training necessary to prepare for a career in dance, as well as additional performing opportunities with its resident ballet company, the Ballet Ensemble of Texas.
The Ballet Academy was awarded the Outstanding School Award for the Southwest area at the Youth America Grand Prix, an international ballet competition, for 6 of the last 10 years. In 2008 the Ballet Academy received the “Small Business of the Year” award from the Coppell Chamber of Commerce. The Academy is an 11,000 square foot facility consisting of four large studios, all with sprung Marley flooring, viewing areas into all the studios, and two large waiting areas. It is conveniently located in the center of Coppell near the corner of Sandy Lake and Denton Tap roads.
