Acton School of Ballet

Acton School of Ballet celebrates its 47th year as the area's premiere school of classical ballet. We offer a structured syllabus from age 3 through high school, as well as classes for adults- artistry, integrity, and attention to every student.

Operating as usual


Every year, we love inviting our families into the studio to get a glimpse into ASB and their child's class. This year, Observation Week is going virtual, and we invite families to watch their child's class over Zoom the last week of the Winter Term, March 22-27!

Private links will be sent to families for each class. We can't wait to show you how talented our students are!

Our students in Variations 7+ are excited to present their work in a virtual showcase tomorrow at 3:30 pm! 🌟

The link will be sent directly to all ASB families. We're excited to show you how hard they've worked!

We are so thankful to be able to safely continue our programs during the pandemic!

We are always adapting to the current environment created by COVID-19 and are committed to providing the same quality of ballet instruction, whether your student is able to come to the studio or wants to train at home.

Additionally, we have implemented new technologies so that all students feel like they are in the studio, even if they are in their living room. No matter what has changed over the past year, one thing has remained the same: our dedication to our students and their progress! 💕

Exactly one year ago today, we initially had to close our school for in-person instruction for 6 months. Despite not physically seeing our students face-to-face for quite some time, we were amazed by how well they took to continuing to learn through our virtual programs.

Although we are thrilled to have our students in our school again, watching them continue to move forward and grow was nothing short of inspiring! ✨


Our goal at Acton School of Ballet is to provide the finest quality training in classical ballet for all levels and to teach an appreciation for the beauty and discipline of this magnificent art form.

Ballet has many benefits, including:

✅ Improving posture and flexibility
✅ Building muscle and agility
✅ Improving learning abilities and persistence
✅ Stimulating creativity
✅ Building confidence
