Dance in the Classroom brings a weekly pre-ballet lesson directly to students on their school campus. This program is led by Toni Bravo, the Director of Pre-Ballet at the Ballet Austin Academy. Ms. Bravo also founded and leads the Leaps and No Bounds program, a school-based dance program that focuses on using kinesthetic learning as a means of reinforcing the skills necessary for success on state curriculum standards that has served the students of greater Austin since 1995.

Current studies show that the impact of the arts on education clearly indicate that arts experiences do play a significant role: enhancing academic achievement, reaching students on the margins of the educational system, creating an effective learning environment and helping learners connect experiences to the world outside of school.
