At Bataille Academie of the Danse we are a family. While we are fully dedicated to providing our students with a concrete dance education, we understand that it is important for our students to excel in other areas of life outside of Bataille as well. Beyond the Barre was created to showcase how dance enhances our students’ lives outside of the studio and provide details on how our students give back to the community through dance.
