There are many dance studios in the Temecula Valley, but did you know that Academy of Ballet Arts is the only school that offers professional quality training in classical ballet?

We strive to instill in our students that with passion, discipline, and self-motivation they will be successful in any career they choose, and that training the mind is as important as training the body.

ABA graduates have gone on to some of the most prestigious ballet schools and companies in the world including the Royal Ballet School in London. 

Just some of the benefits of exposing your child to ballet at a young age include:

  • Helping their minds grow
  • Sense of achievement
  • Displine
  • Increase in coordination & rhythm
  • Dedication
  • Exercise
  • Better attention span

Purchase your Bottle!

Doffo Winery's California style Malbec showcases a dense burgundy color with a deep violet undertone. It opens with pleasing aromas of black cherry and dark, sun-ripened plum. Balanced fruit, structured tannins and concentrated core of dark fruit combine for a pleasantly long finish. Richly opulent, this full-bodied wine envelops the palate in luscious, lingering black plum and violets along with layers of baking spices.
