A ballet school gem in Ann Arbor, Michigan Our two daughters have been taking lessons at Michigan Academy of Dance & Music for years and it is a wonderful school. The teachers are very committed and caring. For the very young dancers, they incorporate classical ballet steps into a fun, magical program that centers around stories children know and love. For the older children, they have a variety of classes, including intensive ballet classes. A Company class focuses on choreography and performance, and truly leads the children to new heights.
