Developing the next generation of dancers through tradition, innovation, and excellence.

AMPA is a pre-professional ballet training program based on the Vaganova ballet syllabus. Classes take place after school and in the evening. Students begin training as young as 9-years-old (with Pre-Vaganova classes) and continue through 18-years-old. Upper level students train more than 20 hours per week with classes including ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, drama for dancers, and piano.

Mission Statement

The Artistic Motion Preparatory Academy (AMPA) is committed to providing excellence in dance instruction in order to mold and develop artists who are prepared technically, physically, morally, and emotionally to enter the world of professional dance.

Our curriculum is founded on the Vaganova ballet syllabus and is accentuated with classes in tap, jazz, contemporary, and character dance, as well as music and dramatic arts. Our instructors foster the skills and ethics needed to create strong performers and strong individuals.
