Founded in 1981 by Linda Walker, the Academy of Ballet, Tap and Jazz in Tucson has distinguished itself as one of Arizona’s leading classical dance training schools.  Our highly skilled, professional staff offers ballet, tap, and jazz dance classes for students preparing for a professional career, as well as those wishing dance lessons for the many other benefits. All ballet classes, jazz classes and tap classes are carefully graded for age and technical level. This allows each student to be given the individual attention necessary for his or her progress. Our dance studio currently offers fifteen levels of ballet and pointe classes, including a special technique class for our male dancers, and twelve levels of tap, jazz, and contemporary classes. Three spacious dance rooms are available to students from beginning through advanced levels, ages three through adult.

All students are treated as individuals and encouraged to work towards developing strong technique and discipline. The beautiful, artistic standard taught by the professional staff and developed by the students is proudly performed in the annual school recital and the intensive summer workshop performance.
