Tysons Partner Ballet Studio: The Kintz-Meija Academy of Ballet

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing alongside the full international professional cast are local Tyson’s children from The Kintz-Mejia Academy of Ballet. For those accepted, The Kintz-Mejia Academy of Ballet offers the unique opportunity for the uncommon tutelage of pure classical ballet. Founded by Linda Kintz and Mark Mejia in 1984, The Kintz-Mejia Academy of Ballet (KMAB) offers the purest instruction in the art of classical ballet anywhere.  Classes are highly structured with exact and detailed material, and is tailored for children and adults, both beginner and advanced. Serious study of classical ballet can be one of the most rewarding experiences of a lifetime and KMAB offers a unique opportunity right here in the Northern Virginia region to do so with two world-class, professional ballet dancers and master teachers. 

Where and how to train is an important decision, and careful thought must be given to choosing the right school for you or your child. KMAB is one of the very few in this region who can take a student from beginning levels and develop him/her to the highest levels of the dancer's abilities, from early child to adult, with many rising to the level of pre-professional. KMAB alumni are represented in professional dance companies throughout the US and internationally, demonstrating the importance of a strong foundation and proper training to develop the student into a dancer.
