My daughter has taken ballet there since age 4, 5 years now. The teachers for the pre-ballet for younger kids are just amazing, making the classes fun yet teaching the basics. As they get to the older pre-ballet it stays casual but the teachers work in all the classic ballet steps and terminology, so at 6 my daughter knew all the steps and their names. Now she is in Ballet 1 and it is getting more challenging and serious. I love knowing that she is at a school that also is a working company, and she gets to perform annually in a recital that features the lowest level to the highest, and they are a role model for her. Miss Kitty is well organized and always kind to everyone. A daughter of one of my friends has been there for years and years and she has grown into a very good ballerina. She takes 6 classes a week and performs in 6 of the acts in the recital. The training they provide really shows.

North Atlanta Dance Academy is an excellent dance school for classical ballet training. I took classes in ballet there as a teenager and learned a great deal from my dance teacher about ballet technique. The performance quality of their shows is high as well. I would think twice about other dance styles though. Their main focus is on classical ballet and they lack some of the open attitudes needed to be on the forefront of jazz, modern, and lyrical dance. The studio is also focused on their dance company and their company dancers which without a childhood of intense ballet training your child will not be a part of. I recommend this school highly for classical ballet training, yet I would also take jazz, modern, or lyrical classes elsewhere for fun.
