Description Alma Dance School is a professional ballet training facility for young talents interested in building a strong foundation in ballet and pursuing a career in dance. Alma Dance School is under the direction of two Cuban principal dancers and award-winning coaches Guillermo Leyva and Vilma Machin. Both are former professional dancers and experienced teachers who have coached many students for the Youth America Grand Prix Competition, where their students have won both in New York finals and Midwest regionals.

Alma Dance School focuses on developing dancers under the very technical, elegant and powerful Cuban method of ballet which allows young students to increase their self-discipline, attention, strength, flexibility, and agility; not only in ballet but in other forms of dance, as well.

We have four ballet divisions that offer classes, ranging from basic ballet technique for new dancers to pre-professional classes designed for students needing the tools and techniques to pursue a career in dance. The skills taught at Alma Dance School could easily lead to a career as a professional dancer or even acceptance into a variety of college programs.
