To help students develop clean classical technique and good artistic expression while making ballet a fun and positive experience for all.
American ballet dancers can perform many amazing technical feats, but many reach even the professional level without being able to express the emotion or intent of a piece. Artistic expression can help a dancer connect with an audience to make a ballet performance truly magical.
At Charles River Ballet Academy, students of all ages, levels, and abilities receive quality training in a nurturing and fun environment. Artistry is developed along with technique, as students are encouraged to experience the joy of dance at every step of their training.
Performing is an important and exciting part of a dancer's development. Performing opportunities will be introduced at an appropriate age, and the scale of the performance will be in proportion to the dancer's age and level of ability. Our year-end Workshop Performances at the beautiful Fine Arts Center at Regis College provide an opportunity for our Pre-Ballet, Primary, and Upper Division students to show the technique they have learned over the year as well as to explore the artistry of dancing before an audience. Students in Class 5-7 also create and perform dances in our annual Young Choreographers Exhibition. Our Touring Ensemble, Holiday Ballet Blast, and New Years Needham provide additional performing opportunities for our students at the holidays. From studio to stage, CRBA is a joyful place to dance and grow within a friendly and supportive community.
