Your Alberta Ballet School Faculty Members

Alberta Ballet School is proud to be the best ballet academy in the world – and that’s in large part to our incredible Professional Division team. Students in our Professional Division receive world-class instruction from a dynamic and varied faculty as well as guest teachers from around the world. Our Professional Division is led by our esteemed Director, Ashley McNeil, who joined Alberta Ballet School in 2004 before becoming the Head of Junior School for the Professional Division in 2011 and our school’s Artistic Principal in 2013.

Our Professional Division faculty include not only artistic professionals, but academic and administrative professionals, too. On the dance side, we have a Director for our Open and Provincial Programs (who is also Head of Junior School), a Director of the Alberta Ballet Trainee Program, a Head of Senior School, a Head of Contemporary Dance, and an Artistic Advisor in addition to dedicated and talented Professional Division Instructors. We also have a team member who is Head of Wardrobe and custom fits costumes for more than 750 students each year.

On the academic front, our Professional Division students receive academic oversight from our Academic Principal, Ms. Candice Beermann, who brings a unique perspective as an academic administrator with an extensive background in ballet. Ms. Beermann leads a team of accomplished accredited private school academic staff who provide on-site grades 7-12 academic programming for Professional Division students to work toward achieving their Alberta High School Diploma.

Alberta Ballet School offers a residence program for all its Professional Division dancers, and those students benefit from full-time, on-site staff. To assist our students, our school has a Head of Residence who is dedicated to making Alberta Ballet School residence a home away from home.

Alberta Ballet School is in a class of its own and we have incredible faculty leading the charge. If you would like to learn more about our Professional Division team members, please click here.
