Thank you for visiting the Rhode Island Ballet Arts Academy (RIBAA) website and inquiring about our program of instruction.

Our program focuses on developing the potential talents of youth through dance, in particular through the discipline, artistry and physical demands of ballet. One objective is to develop proper ballet technique and execution through many levels of ballet instruction, from the very young to adult. Another is to foster self-discipline and confidence. A third is to expose the dancer to alternative dance forms as well, to help stimulate a more rounded perspective of physical expression.

In all cases there is an insistence on dance quality and technique, a demand for excellence. It is the foundation of RIBAA.

In light of the COVID situation the following are temporary changes in effect:

- The Summer Schedule has been established for July 12th-August 18th.

- Private and Semi-Private (2 or 3) sessions can be arranged by appointment, at your convenience. Instructor- Nancy McAuliffe Rates Private $75/hr; Semi-Private $50/hr per dancer (2 or 3 dancers). Note: Masks are not required for those vaccinated.

Please Email ( or call me at 401-261-7943 to schedule.


Nancy McAuliffe, Artistic Director
