On behalf of the staff and administration of Barbara's Conservatory of Dance, we would like to welcome you to our 2021/22 year.

Please stay tuned to Facebook and emails for the latest news regarding studio classes. We are committed to the health and well-being of our dancers and community and will keep you updated on our studio status.

Barbara's Conservatory of Dance is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 9 level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels. Pre-Primary through Level 5 will be taught by ABT® Certified Teacher, Lacee Sandgren, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 5 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum.

Please keep your class levels and teachers' names handy. This is important when filling out revue costume forms and when you need to send messages to specific teachers. Again, have a wonderful year full of learning and inspiration.
