The Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education arrives in Virginia-Highland
In January, the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education expanded on its two existing locations in Buckhead and West Midtown with a new Virginia- Highland facility, housed in the Amsterdam Walk complex off Monroe Drive.
“We were still busting at the seams at our other locations,” says Nicole Adams, principal of the new Centre. “The Virginia-Highland area has been something we’ve never been able to tap into, so we’re really excited to get patrons from Decatur, Morningside and Ansley Park.”
Classes are available to students of every skill level and age. “We have the motto that dance is for all,” Adams says. “We have a place for everyone. If you’re 50 years young, we’ll have classes for you.”
That welcoming energy and educational mission is what the Centre aims to bring to the community. “People in this area appreciate a new gem in their neighborhood,” Adams says. “I think that’s just what we’ll be: a new asset to the neighborhood and a great part of the community.”
