Although  the Academy of Classical Ballet lost its lease and moved out of the Arvada studio in 2017, artistic director Carla Parks is now fulfilling her passion for teaching by offering class in her home.  She has transformed a room there into a small but efficient ballet studio.

Structured movement is one of mankind's most primal urges.  Channeling it into a discipline such as ballet stimulates creativity, imagination, and freedoms gained only through movement.  The regimented structure of ballet also fosters respect and a sense of history, while teaching advanced motor skills, rhythm, coordination, and flexibility.

For more than 40 years, the Academy of Classical Ballet has been training dancers of all ages to be the best they can be, using teaching techniques that respect anatomy, emphasize correct alignment and posture, and avoid injuries caused by improper practices such as forced turnout.

The philosophy of the Academy of Classical Ballet is to allow each student to advance at their own pace, respecting the students' ages and abilities, in an atmosphere of encouragement, discipline, and warmth.

In addition to the children's curriculum which allows students as young as four to work on basic ballet movement and continuing through advanced classes, a unique feature of the Academy of Classical Ballet is our fully featured adult dance program.  Beginning and continuing students of all ages are welcomed.  You're never too old to take your place at the barre.  Adult students have the opportunity to learn partnering, pointe work, & men's technique.

Please contact artistic director Carla Parks at 303-877-4686 for further information.
