Southland Ballet Academy is dedicated to excellence in dance training. Founded to cultivate and inspire an appreciation of classical ballet, SBA is the training ground for the best dancers in Orange County. The Fountain Valley branch was opened in 1983 and the Irvine branch in 2010.

Classes are taught in the Vaganova method and are presented in a positive, creative atmosphere by professional dance instructors who understand the intricacies of dance. Our goal is to offer age- and level-appropriate instruction to each student that will increase his or her skill and confidence.
