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.


Our annual recital is the first Sunday in June. Although it is not mandatory, we encourage participation as it is a rewarding, confidence building experience. Costume fees are to be paid in full by November 15th for each class. After January 1st, we are unable to refund any costume fees.
