Once Upon a Ballet and Musical Theater is a premier performing arts school entering its ninth year in Atlanta, GA and celebrating its fifteenth year in Charleston, SC.
We are not a recital or competition based school, but rather we focus on the PROCESS of learning. We work to develop, inspire and cultivate the individual talents of your child in a loving and nurturing environment. We offer programs in Ballet, Tap, Musical Theater, and Acting for ages 2-14.
"My daughter has been dancing with Once Upon a Ballet for 3 years. Their staff is excellent at engaging the kids, and their summer camps are phenomenal! Our daughter loves to go to ballet every week."
"We have been attending OUAB for 2.5 years now and couldn't imagine our family anywhere else. As a former ballerina myself, I wanted to find a studio that would teach my daughter the basics of ballet but also foster creativity and instill a love of ballet in her. This is the place!"
"Lilia, our 5 year old daughter, has been attending Once Upon a Ballet classes for 3 years. Lilia has always been eager to go to class, and especially to see what story they will be covering for class. She loves dressing up in costumes that correspond with the story, while using her ballet and tap skills that she has learned in class. She loves going to class so much that we have also participated in summer camps, and even shared her 4th birthday with OUAB. We love OUAB!"
"My daughter has been at OUAB for two years. Her Musical Theater class teaches the fundamentals while at the same time instilling a confidence in the girls that is apparent with each improving performance. As a member of the performance troupe she has blossomed under the direction of Lindsey and the rest of the team. I am amazed by the professional level of the two productions my daughter has been a part of so far. She also had a great time at the Frozen themed summer camp. I have and will continue to recommend this program to anyone with a child interested in acting and musical theater."
"Two words: Top-notch. From the pre-school dance programs to the creative summer camp programs; from the advanced dance instruction to the musical theatre troupe, Lindsey and her staff are top-notch professionals in a top-notch organization. They are teaching our children the fundamentals while inspiring confidence, poise and presence and a passion for the performing arts that will stay with them for a lifetime."
"Once Upon A Ballet's kindness, hard work, passion and professionalism is to be applauded! Thank you for welcoming my children and for inspiring them to reach their true potential for the last 3.5 years!!"
