"Dance is the most
immediate and accessible of the arts because it involves your own body.
When a youngster learns to move his body on a note of music, itís
exciting. He has taken control of his body; and by learning to do that,
he has discovered he can take control of his life."

Student - Parent Comments:
"The school is great and the front waiting room
Library of ballet, health and dance books and information is the most
comprehensive I have seen including the public library. I look forward
to my child's classes so I can get educated and stay ahead of my
daughter as she moves forward with her dance career."
"The way Ms. Voelpel presents and
explains ballet technique for adults is wonderful - it's informative and
easy to follow. I also found the ballet school workbooks to be very
helpful, no other Warrenton, or Northern Virginia ballet or dance
schools where I have taken classes, provided them."
"I never dreamed my little 2 year old
would get such a thrill out of Miss Melissa's dance classes in Creative
Movement. She really looks forward to her time at the Ballet Academy.
Now, she asks me regularly, if it is time for dance school."

way she approaches training with a firm hand yet kind heart my daughter
looks forward to her pre ballet classes."

"Of all the Virginia Ballet schools I
have researched, the Ballet Academy of Warrenton, in Northern Virginia
offers the best curriculum for me to pursue a professional dance
"The Dance instruction is among the
best I have ever received but what surprised me most was how spacious
the dressing room was and how clean and well kept the dance studios
were. (An older student who had taken classes all over the US)
"I have two left feet and Kit
explained and demonstrated the technique of Ballroom dance steps so even
I could learn it."
"I have taken my child to several
acrobatic schools in Northern Virginia but Miss Linda is the most
professional teacher she has had. That includes those gymnastics schools
which say they teach the same thing - they don't."
I am really thrilled that Denise
