About Us

Charles River Ballet Academy helps students develop clean classical technique and good artistic expression while making ballet a fun and positive experience for all. Our program provides the children and adults of Needham and surrounding towns with solid technique, an artistic outlet, and fun! We offer classes for age 2-18 as well as adult classes at our Needham Center studios. Ballet Together, Pre-Ballet, Ballet, and Pointe classes. Variations and modern classes are also offered for advanced students. Performing opportunities are introduced at an appropriate age to enhance the dancers' development.
