By Tamara:

Another beautiful end of year performance tonight by Art Ballet Academy. I'm very blessed to be part of such a talented and caring studio. It is wonderful to watch Mrs. Masha's students grow through out the years. She truly cares about each and every one of her students and pours her heart into her work. I recommend Art Ballet Academy to aspiring dancers of all ages and experience levels.

By Tamara:
Another fabulous production by Miss Masha, her Academy students, and guest performers. Costuming, musicality, staging, choreography, and the dancing were all amazing! I loved seeing Miss Masha on stage in such a fun role! It is wonderful that Miss Masha finds humor in the story lines. Red Riding Hood & the Wolf, Hop O' My Thumb, His Brothers, & Orge, and of course the White and Black Cats added a wonderful light hearted side. The principle roles were stunning. All the students showed off their hard work wonderfully. Congratulations everyone on a outstanding performance!

By Melanie: Wonderful ballet academy! Ms. Masha and all the people that help her make a fabulous organization.

By Sharon: Wonderful production, great dancing and costumes. Thank you so much for inviting us!

By Elizabeth: I'm sure this is one of a million e-mails that you'll get congratulating you, but I HAVE to tell you how SPECTACULAR the show was last night. I was so impressed that you were able to pull such an elaborate production together, especially considering that so much of the rehearsal time was in your studio, which seems tiny compared to the actual stage. Loved it, loved it. Thank you so much for the experience, both as the mother and as a spectator.

By Cynthia: My daughter Hannah is a student here and we absolutely love it! Mrs. Mariya is wonderful with the girls and very attentive. She seems to care about each of their progress. I give this place a two thumbs up!:)

By Ginger: Thank you for sharing your amazing gift of dance and gift for teaching with our children & families.

By Tamara: Ms Kudyakova is not only a very skilled ballerina, but she is the sweetest, caring, most dedicated ballet teacher you will find. After catching her Spring Concert Performance of Cinderella, (where all her students from Pre Ballet to Adults had the opportunity to perform in), I now see why people drive from near and far to attend her classes. If you are looking for a studio that is not only exceptional with classical ballet training, but also offers a positive, fun, and nrturing environment, check out ABA.

By Aimee: My daughter Elise loves ABA! The owner/teacher is amazing and really cares about each individual student. She goes out of her way to great the students and the parents by their names before class. I know that we will be dancing at ABA for a long time and I encourage you to come and try a class for yourself.

By Arlington:
A fun, family environment for all! I will continue to enroll in the ballet studio classes as long as I continue to live in Arlington. Amazing!

By Ginger: Thank you to Miss Mariya and all of the dancers and volunteers that made Cinderella a beautiful success!

By Kim:
Cinderella was awesome. All the kids were great and thank you to Mariya for all the hours of hard work and the volunteers who helped her!

By Tamara: Another spectacular show by Mrs. Mariya Kudyakova and her students. The Nutcracker was extraordinary. Choreography, Dancing, Costuming, and Staging were all amazing. It was truly a magical performance. Congratulation to everyone on their hard work well deserved standing ovation! I wish you Merde on tomorrow's performance! I'm sure it will be just as beautiful.

By Melanie: Thank you all for the Magical evening! It was Amazing!
