As you may have heard, Ambition Performing Arts is the home of the Airdrie Ballet Company.  The Airdrie Ballet Company (ABC) is Airdrie’s Premiere Youth Ballet Company. Our program is comprised of three divisions: Ensemble, Repertoire and Pre-Professional.

ABC endeavours to nurture the whole dancer in an inclusive and dynamic atmosphere, and believes that dance lessons teach life lessons. We create physically and mentally healthy dancers through holistic and thoughtful training and mentorship.
