The study of classical ballet teaches students a discipline that gives grace to body, mind and spirit. As each ABS student strives to attain
his or her personal best, they learn perseverance, time management and dedication to a common goal.  Mastering the syllabus of
classical ballet- jetes, chaines, fouettes, pirouettes, arabesques - gives students a large movement vocabulary with which to
communicate the sheer joy of dancing.  The Auburn Ballet School syllabus was designed specifically for the school and was written in
2004 by Diana Green.         

Class size is limited to assure ample individualized attention to each student.

Alabama Dance Festival, the contingency of dancers from Auburn was the largest in the state.       

ABS performances are designed to allow dancers to participate in artistic, classical, disciplined performances that show respect for
every person and love for the power and beauty of dance.  Preschool classes participate in their own matinée performance each spring,
celebrating the joy of children discovering dance and music.
