A former professional dancer is bringing her expertise to the Emerald Coast by teaching the art of ballet to students.
Allyson Raymond is founder and instructor of 30A Ballet and the first thing she will tell you, this is a traditional dance school, it's not about competition and trophies. Allyson says at 30A Ballet, she concentrates on technique and proper form and students learn the history and the etiquette of ballet.
After 20 years performing as a professional dancer with the Atlanta Ballet Company, Allyson feels she can be a major influence on her young students and not just on the dance floor.
Allyson will be conducting summer camps this year with guest instructors coming in from around the country to take part. 30A Ballet is located at 22200 Panama City Beach Parkway.
