The instructors and staff of the Alameda Ballet Academy are dedicated to bringing quality classical dance education to the greater Alameda community. They seek to impart students with artistry, self expression, grace and musicality, while encouraging a love for the art of dance.
Alameda Ballet Academy and its affiliate performing company, Alameda Civic Ballet, were founded in 2003 by the Artistic Director Abra Rudisill. In her lessons and leadership, Abra draws upon her 20 years of experience as a Prima Ballerina and Ballet Mistress with Oakland Ballet, and she seeks to carry on her artistic lineage through the education of Bay Area youth.
Students are in encouraged to perform in both the ballet company’s Nutcracker holiday performance and the school’s Spring Recital.
