The staff is welcoming, the studios are large, well equipped, clean, and the added benefit of parent viewing capabilities. I do not have to worry about what my girls will be hearing, dancing to, or asked to do through choreography. The instructors are all trained and come with vast experience!

The absolute best dance education in Chesapeake/Hampton Roads. Wonderful Christian atmosphere for your little dancers.

ADB Parent & Former Student

Fantastic studio, very obvious teachers invest in the students and genuinely care. Modesty is taken into account when selecting recital costumes, and no inappropriate dance routines/music. It has large viewing area for families to watch during classes and discounts for multiple dancers in the same family, as well as multiple classes. Great pricing, and no additional recital fees! Academie De Ballet has been in the area for many years and continues to be as fantastic a studio now as it was when I was a teen. Our family highly recommends Academie De Ballet for anyone considering entering the dance world!
