Charlottesville Ballet Academy

Charlottesville Ballet Academy (CBA) is a center for dance education for ages 1.5 through adult. CBA opened in 2011 and is the official training school of Charlottesville Ballet. Charlottesville Ballet is central Virginia’s nonprofit professional ballet company founded in 2007 with a mission to elevate the art of dance through wellness, performance, education, and community outreach.

Charlottesville Ballet Academy is located at 1885 Seminole Trail at the intersection of 29 and Woodbrook Drive. At this facility we are able to offer accessible dance education to more members of the community. Our location boasts five spacious studios with a studio theatre. We are also expanding and offering even more classes at satellite locations, including classes at The Center at Belvedere and a new pop-up location at the IX Art Park.

Charlottesville Ballet is also expanding access to dance for all in our community through our program, CB Moves. CB Moves provides dance instruction at no cost to students at our local public schools (Chance To Dance program), students with Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, or any other developmental and intellectual disabilities (Adaptive Dance program), and classes for adults diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease (Movement for Parkinson’s). This program is key to promoting wellness– physical, mental, and emotional–and furthers the mission of Charlottesville Ballet.
