Jeni and Gary Williams are the unlikely but very proud owners of the Acadmey of Classical Ballet. In 2005 when the dance studio where their son attended closed unexpectedly, Jeni and Gary volunteered to host and lead a parent meeting at their home to discuss ideas on how to keep the kids dancing together. With the tremendous support of dedicated instructors and the unwavering encouragement of their fellow dance parents, Jeni and Gary emerged as leaders in the effort to find a place to have classes, and begin the long journey to what would eventually be called the Academy of Classical Ballet. Opening their brand new state-of-the-art facility in the fall of 2007, these relative newcomers to the world of dance have absolutely raised the barre on dance in the northwest valley. Dance parents at heart, they run the studio with a genuine concern for their dancers and the dedicated parents who support their children’s interest in dance. Five years into this whirlwind experience, it continues to be a labor of love as they enjoy the privilege of watching young dancers find their balance and releve up to their potential.
