Oscar Hawkins Artistic Director/Ballet Master

Ballet Arts Academy at the Old Waldorf School was established in 2005 for the purpose of providing the community
with a dance environment devoted exclusively to the study of classical ballet. In addition, the Academy offers complementary enrichment
activities that provide an enduring appreciation for music, art and aspects of stage production and performance. The primary focus is educational
offering a comprehensive course of instruction in classical ballet that follows the Vaganova method of training, service to the community
through educational outreach and scholarships, and enrichment by engaging local and regional artists, musicians, dancers, poets, actors,
theatre technicians, and master teachers for workshops and seminars which will be available to our students and members of the community.

The Ballet Arts Academy at the Old Waldorf School is funded in part
by grants from the Charles County Arts Alliance and the Margaret Abell Powell Fund.
