Director Allison Miller of The Ballet Academy is highly knowledgeable, inviting and communicative. I’ve learned much helpful information as one of a few adults in her instructive teen/adult beginner pointe class. While The Ballet Academy’s location within a larger busy studio can be a little awkward, it is a place where students (adult and children) will definitely learn and enjoy ballet.
