Center City Ballet and Movement Arts (CCBMA) is a new dance studio in the Historic Boulevard District in Athens, Georgia.


CCBMA specializes in technical ballet training for children and adults with an understanding that ballet provides a solid foundation for all forms of dance. We believe that in addition to technique, students should learn the history and origins of ballet, resulting in a deeper understanding of the discipline as a performing art.
