Academy & Junior Company Program

The Academy Program of the School of the Albany Berkshire Ballet is a comprehensive training program for the talented and serious pre-teen to teen student who desires to commit more time to the art of dance. Advanced students may audition for the Albany Berkshire Ballet’s Junior Company.

These pre-professional classes accelerate talented students and expose them to nationally known teachers. Both the Academy and the Junior Company perform frequently in the Capital Region and the Berkshires throughout the year. Admission is by audition only. This year, the Program will tentatively begin in January


Our annual recital is in late May or early June. Although it is not mandatory, we encourage participation as it is a rewarding experience and builds confidence. Costume fees are to be paid in full by October 28th for each class you register for. A full refund will be given before ordering if your child chooses not to participate in the recital.
