Founder & Director ~ Miss Amber Pollard has seventeen years of dance experience. She began her training at the age of three at Feet in Motion in Medway, MA, where she received instruction in ballet and tap for two years. When she was five, Amber began attending Stage Door Dance Theatre in Marlborough, MA, where she was trained in ballet, tap, and jazz until the age of nine. At twelve years old, she became a student at The Arts Movement (formerly New England Christian Performing Arts Center) in Hudson, MA. After completing two years of ballet instruction there, she was invited to attend the summer dance intensive and join the Student Company. Being a member of the Company provided her with more advanced training in ballet, lyrical, jazz, and contemporary, as well as the opportunity to be involved in productions in Vermont and New York.
In 2014, Amber joined Ballet Soli Deo Gloria, a Christian ballet school in Lowell, MA. She trained there for two years before moving to West Virginia to attend Appalachian Bible College. In 2017, Amber returned to Ballet SDG where she was an assistant and teacher, as well as an adult student training in ballet, lyrical, and Irish step. The Lord has now led her to open a Christian ballet school in her hometown. She is certified in Progressing Ballet Technique and has attended teacher's training with Cecchetti USA. Currently she is a Cecchetti USA Ballet Scholar. Besides dance, Amber also has experience in gymnastics and musical productions. Additionally, she has several years of experience in teaching children and teens in various ministry settings. In 2015, Amber graduated from a 2-year leadership training program at Camp Cedarbrook in the Adirondacks, a Christian camp for girls. She has since served on staff there for five summers as an Activity Specialist. Amber enjoys teaching girls and worshiping the Lord through dance and is thankful for the opportunity to operate a Christ-centered ballet school.
