This year, we are very excited to welcome back two Guest Instructors who are wonderful technicians and amazing dancers: Ben Warner and Danielle Troyano. Registration is now open!

In addition to teaching for the Ballet Idaho Academy, Danielle is proud to be certified and currently teaching Dance for Parkinson’s, a movement class designed to ease the symptoms of those with Parkinson’s Disease. She remains on permanent faculty at the Hinsdale Dance Academy in Hinsdale, Illinois, which just won the Outstanding School Award at the Youth America Grand Prix finals. Over the years, she has served as the director of the young children’s program, the Nutcracker production manager and returning summer faculty. Danielle loves teaching and passing along her love of dance to the up and coming generations of talent.
“Back to the Barre”
Every summer in Late July, early August, we invite our students to come back to the barre for ballet class.
It is a great way to get ballet ready and start the year off on the “right” foot!
