If your child is hungry to fully explore ballet, tap, jazz, modern, to really excel in technique and have lots of stage time - then ADC is where they belong.

Our Pre-Professional Ballet Company Celebrating 33 Years

What really makes ADC stand out is the quality of the training, the dedication to excellence, a staff that have been working at the studio for many years. All dancers have the benefit of working with Miss Marsha, a theatre director who will coach their acting skills, ensuring they are perfectly prepared for the stage.

Dancers audition each year for the Company, and each dancer must exhibit a clear aptitude in ballet and other dance styles. All members of ADC 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.  There are 6 skill levels in ADC, each dancer progresses through the levels at their own personal rate.

ADC is lead by Marsha Newton the Artistic Director, Miss Aleena and Mr Noel with an Artistic Board which focuses on all dance genres, overseeing each dancer's progress in all areas. Miss Aleena is one of our expert teachers and rehearsal coaches who grew up at BAPA. She has a wealth of experience and knowledge to share with our dancers, after all, she has been exactly where they are. Here at BAPA, we are committed to training the dancers and leaders of tomorrow.
