The Highlands Center for Ballet Arts & Kindermusik of Abingdon

Dance school in Abingdon, VA teaching classical ballet, jazz, contemporary, and Kindermusik

Purpose and Curriculum: At the Highlands Center for Ballet Arts we are dedicated to the development of stronger bodies, a higher degree of coordination, an appreciation of line and style, regard for great music, and a love and understanding of the art of dance. The Highlands Center for Ballet Arts offers a carefully graded program of training and places individuals according to age groups, past experience, and ability. Classical Ballet training is the primary curriculum, but studies in Classical Jazz, Contemporary, pre-professional & Kindermusik® training are also offered. Pre Ballet for Children and creativity in dance and music are excellent as a preparation for future dance training and as a first introduction to a learning process and a first classroom situation. Kindermusik® is a music & movement program for newborns through 7 years.

Concentration is Classical Ballet

Mission: Our mission is to nurture and provide support and inspiration for young and aspiring dancers, in a wholesome and friendly atmosphere...and to bring to students of dance, training at a level of technical and artistic excellence.

It’s International Dance Day!

Happy International Dance Day!

This is fabulous! But...I would add for our Highlands Ballet dancers: be patient with yourself...practice self willing to fail and get back up...marvel at this time we are given to be self aware and POUR IT INTO YOUR DANCING! XO

Training from home: Post 1 : Mentally we have to make a choice right now.

none of us want to train on a tiny screen... we want to be in the studio working technique, dancing from our hearts, doing a grande allegro, a pique manage!.... but here we are....

We need to make a choice to train hard, work and use this opportunity to train details, build strength, and gain flexibility. Some dancers will come back and need 6 weeks to get back in shape, and some will come back stronger, more flexible and ready to go... Which kind of dancer are you?

Action Step for Today: Do ALL the recommended work your studio has sent you... and then... do it again! Every studio is choosing material for their dancers to do with purpose. We are counting on you to demand excellence, detail, precision. All the things we'd say... we need you to say them to yourself.
