“Our daughter has attended ABA’s Cape Cod summer intensives for two years. She loved the longer schedule, and learning new variations and choreography. She enjoyed working with new teachers, having a live pianist, and dancing in a wonderful environment. In addition, having ABA alumni return for the intensives was a great way to learn more about the professional dance world and was very inspirational for her. The living situation at Cape Cod encouraged her to develop closer relationships with the other dancers, and she looks forward to attending the summer intensives again next year.”

- Bob Olshin - PTP parent

“ABA performances are a real treat! From the moment you arrive at the professional venue, you expect a high-level performance, and the dancers do not disappoint. Rather, to the sound of beautiful musical and in whimsical costumes, the ABA dancers put on a show that delights everyone from true dance aficionados to my 13 year old son! The performances include both classical and contemporary pieces– so something for everyone. This is the type of show that makes for a great night not just for parents, but instead for the whole community. It’s time this hidden treasure becomes a known and valued ritual. Come one, come all and enjoy!”
