The GOAL of the Ballet Academy of Texas is to provide quality, professional dance instruction for all ages. The primary focus is on classical ballet technique which provides a strong foundation for all other dance forms. The school was awarded the OUTSTANDING SCHOOL award for the Southwest area at the Youth America Grand Prix, an International Ballet Competition, 5 out of the last 10 years. The Ballet Academy of Texas opened a new, state-of-the-art 11,000 sq. ft. facility in October, 2005. It consists of four large studios, all with sprung marley flooring, viewing areas into all the studios, and two large waiting areas. It is conveniently located in the center of Coppell near the corner of Sandy Lake Rd. and Denton Tap Rd., just south of I-121.
