Under a founder that studied ballet around the world, we have created the perfect introduction that blends the classic positions with the great joy of movement.

This is the place to have your dancer inpspired by the beauty of ballet , and where they begin to develop the life long love and appreciation of dance at it's absolute best!!!!! Enrolling tiny dancers all year round. "Where dreams really do come true!"
All of this attached to a studio that produces dancers that are accepted at the top dance training institutuion in the nation and under a founder who studied on scholarship at elite ballet companies like San Francisco Ballet, New York City Ballet, and Pennsylvania Ballet.

Pictured below is Catrina Contini perfoming the variation Esmerelda ballet last year at YAGP. This year Ali Ely from Aptos Agape Dance Academy performed the same variation. Student in Agape Dance Academy Aptos will be rehearsing these variations all year for our February competition. Although our studio does not place great emphasis on competitions, we find that this one prestigious ballet competition has the benefit challenging the dancer to perfect the detailed mastery of these classic ballet variations which then grows them as a dancer. Having a goal to work towards with their personal best as the real prize, also develops skills in team work, focus, discipline, and tenacity that will be character traits that will serve them well in most of there future pursuits.
