At the Academy of Ballet Arts, we feel very privileged to work with your children and pass onto them the beauty and art of ballet.

We provide the highest caliber training from the beginning student to the professional, while developing confidence and self esteem in a caring, supportive environment.

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.

We believe that experiencing the performing arts is a vital element in the development and education of our children.

We extend a heartfelt welcome to you and your family!

Academy of Arts Malbec

We are proud to announce that Temecula's own, award winning Doffo Winery has sponsored Academy of Ballet Arts! 

Doffo Winery created a special edition ABA label for their 2015 Malbec, featuring ABA Trained Mira Larsen who is currently performing at the world renowned Royal Ballet School!

For every bottle of this special edition 2015 Malbec purchased, Doffo Winery will donate a portion of the sale to Academy of Ballet Arts! These donations will help ABA and their dancers register for expensive competitions, provide transportation, create scholarships and much more!

Purchase your bottle of Doffo Winery's special edition Malbec featuring ABA's Mira Larsen before they are gone!

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.

ABA Uncorked!

What an amazing and successful evening we had last night! The dancers were simply stunning to watch. We are so proud of all of them and we couldn't have asked for more. 

A huge thank you to the community for coming out and supporting ABA. We were absolutely at capacity. And of course a special thank you to Doffo Winery for providing wine and for creating a special Academy of Ballet Arts bottle with proceeds benefitting ABA dancers, Nancy Cordi for some delicious food, Terri's Tasty Cupcakes for bringing some fantastic cupcakes, and of course Kevin Harold for creating our sizzle reel to show a little bit of what the dancers work so hard on every day. 

And of course a huge thank you to Graciela Hernandez for bringing us all together as one. Together we can make dreams come true. We couldn't have asked for a better ending to the day. It was simply magical.


That's a wrap on another season of Nutcracker performances. Thank you to everyone who was a part of making this performance a success, from the dancers to our wonderful teachers to the parents and our theatre crew. You all are amazing!!
