There is no ballet company in the Shoals area as past attempts at collaborations didn't work out.
I would say that for classical ballet, Shoals Dance Academy, owned by Vicky Pace, is best as far as technique and creative choreography. Second would be Tara Rodi School of the Dance. In the past, Laura's had trouble keeping a ballet teacher around and always seemed more focused on jazz, modern, and tumbling. Good luck!
