What our customer say.
We love ACBA! They balance classical ballet methods while keeping the classes fun enough for my daughter to enjoy coming each week. She leaves feeling more confident, energized and seen by her teachers. I know my dancer is getting top notch dance instruction.
Even though ACBA specializes in ballet, they also offer a great variety of other types of dance classes, including tap, jazz and hip-hop. My daughter loves her tap classes with Mr. James. His enthusiasm and obvious joy when teaching the kids puts a smile on her face every class. A big thanks to ACBA for nurturing so many styles of dance, and to Mr. James for all his hard work!
My daughter (7 years old) has been attending ACBA for about 4 years and is currently in Pre-Ballet, Pre-Tap, and Hop & Pop. I personally LOVE the small class sizes and the staff that pours into these kids encouraging their love of dance! She looks forward to going to classes each week and has made some great friends these past years. Dance provides discipline and encourages confidence. I enjoy seeing her growth each year when she gets up on stage for recital! We love ACBA and would highly recommend this studio if your kids are interested in dance!
My oldest daughter started at ACBA in Dance with Me. I really enjoyed being able to dance with her while being around other adults. As she has grown, she has moved through the classes and is excited to be in her first production of the Nutcracker this year! ACBA has been part of her growing up into a "big kid" and I am happy that her little sister has started her own journey with ACBA in their Bitty Bear class. The teachers are kind and knowledgeable, the studio is clean, and I greatly appreciate the high level of communication with parents via email and texts.
My ballerina loves going to ballet classes at ACBA because she loves performing on the large stage in beautiful costumes, learning new dance genres like tap and wearing her leotard like her friends in her class; She is always excited on ballet day. I love sending my daughter to classes at ACBA because she learns professional dance skills from a talented, friendly instructor and culminates her dance season by performing in a professional, high-level production that showcases her hard work, which grows her self-confidence and pride in her accomplishment.
One of my favorite parts of ACBA is the supportive community. It's not uncommon to see older kids cheer on younger students, or hear compliments from teachers as the students leave the studio for the day. Everyone is a cheerleader and encourages the students to be the best part of themselves. In a world often lacking, it's refreshing to have a studio immersed in positivity. My son's favorite part of ACBA is being able to 'transform' through dance. Whether it's being a party kid in the Nutcracker or envisioning himself as a swan in the spring recital. ACBA taps into student's creative energy to make something both beautiful and fun for students of all ages and abilities.
We LOVE ACBA! My daughter has been attending this school since she was 3, she’s about to turn 7! My daughter has a little bit of a speech delay and they’ve always been amazing with her and she’s always excited to go. She started with Bitty Bear Ballet and now takes Pre-ballet and Hop & Pop! Highly recommend.
We have been at ACBA for a little over 1 year now and it has quickly become, “our second home.” My 2 daughters love dance and prior to ACBA, we lived in Texas. There we were a part of a dance studio for almost a decade that was like a family. Leaving that was very hard but we are so happy to have found another studio here in Alaska they can come to weekly to learn and grow ! My girls love ACBA!
My kids LOVE taking class at ACBA.
