Welcome to the Texas Academy of Ballet
It is the goal of the Texas Academy of Ballet to offer a comprehensive dance program, with an emphasis on classical ballet.
The Academy’s ballet program is based on the syllabus provided by the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) in London. The goal of the RAD is to ensure correct training and to inspire each student’s creativity, musicality and dramatic expression. The students may participate in annual examinations administered by an official representative of the RAD.
