Allegro West

Allegro West Academy of Dance

Allegro West Academy of Dance is a classical ballet studio founded in 2001 under director Catriona Steel. The studio is focused on excellence in ballet training, first and foremost. It is our firm belief that commitment to ballet training is both fundamental and foundational to all other dance forms, so we incorporate the Royal Academy of Dance Syllabus.  Supplemental dance classes are offered in Jazz, Tap, Modern, Contemporary as well as Stretch and Conditioning Classes. 

Allegro West Academy of Dance has guided students though their training and into their careers if that is the path they choose. Currently, Allegro West Alumni are dancing professionally with Washington Ballet, New York City Ballet, Alberta Ballet, Dutch National Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet and Michael Susten and Company. They have also performed professionally with Royal Caribbean and The Radio City Rockettes. Allegro West alumni have been accepted into many accredited year round programs including The Bolshoi Ballet, School of American Ballet, Ballet West, Joffrey Ballet, Houston Ballet, Texas Ballet Theater, and Orlando Ballet. Our dancers have also continued on to pursue their higher education in dance at SUNY Purchase, Marymount Manhattan, Point Park University, and Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies. 

Our goal at Allegro West is for every dancer who attends class to leave with not only dance ability but discipline, poise, inspiration, and a love and respect for the art form. Our instructors are passionate about educating young dancers and we hope that ignites not just the next generation of dancers but of avid theater patrons!
