‘Academy Dance Company’
Pre-Profesional Ballet Company
The Academy Dance Company was created in 1987 by the renowned Ann Avery Burton as an opportunity for the dance students of the school to further expand their skills and talents in ballet, above and beyond their formally scheduled classes. Dancers audition each year for the Company, and each dancer must exhibit a clear aptitude in ballet and other dance styles. All member of ADC dancers are given the additional opportunity of performing in two ballets per year, working with visiting Professional Master Teachers, Choreographers and Professional Dancers. This is the perfect forum for committed dancers to develop and share their passion and dancing talent with their community. ADC is lead by Marsha Newton the Artistic Director, Marina Lavashava as Ballet Mistress and an Artistic Board overseeing each dancers progress.
