"As someone who comes here almost every day, I can honestly say there's no place I'd rather be. Each class I take, working with the amazing teachers and students inspires me to push myself to be the best dancer I can be. Ballet Arts Centre has been my foundation for becoming the person I am today, and has given me the opportunity to be part of a great community."
– Eleanor Jenke, BAC Student
"My daughter has been dancing at BAC since she was four, and now she is 17 and in her last year! I watched her grow from a shy four year old to a beautiful, confident dancer and person, all learned through dance at BAC. The teachers instill a love of dance, and it shows in every class. My daughter has learned commitment but also gained a positive sense of self through dance. I am so grateful for all that Debbie and the staff have done for us for 14 years. I know she will take with her all that she learned and accomplished here to her next stage."

Our experience here has been awesome, the staff is great, and they are always willing to help you with a big smile on their faces. At the end of class my daughter will say "Mom, this was so much fun, I love ballet!"

"There are many dance studios and companies in most towns. What I love about BAC is that in addition to teaching dancing, there is an emphasis on professionalism as a dance student. I like that there are expectations for each class and the bar is set high on their presentation in the recital. The students seem to rise to the expectations that are set for them, and I am happy to see them enjoy the process and at the end be proud of what they have achieved."

"The exceptional teachers at BAC have taught me how to translate my passion for dance into a strong technique. They have also showed me how to be competitive, yet professional. I have met my closest friends through BAC and I know the teachers and students will always be there to support me. The strong relationships between teachers and students provide a fun and comfortable, yet challenging, classroom environment. The experiences I have had at BAC have prepared me for dancing in the future."

"Debbie Boyle has done a phenomenal job putting together a faculty filled with teachers who are not only talented and successful artists but are also kind and passionate people dedicated to helping their students succeed. BAC has one of the best pre-professional programs out there and I can confidently say they prepared me for a highly competitive career in dance. I am so grateful for my training at Ballet Arts Centre and even more so for the family that came with it.”
