The Braintree Ballet Company was formed in 1994 by Melissa Kelley. The objective was to give serious dance students of
Ms. Kelley's dance school, The Dance Studio Of Braintree, an opportuniy to see another side of ballet dance education, performing
full length ballets. With her company, Ms. Kelley has presented many of the most loved classics as well as some company originals to
the public audience. Ballets include: The Nutcracker, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Hansel and Gretel, Coppleia,. Giselle, An Eveneing
with Degas, A Gala, and many more.
It is Melissa's goal to continue to offer such experiences for her students who chose to dedicate much of their free time to the art of
dance. The company performances provide additional training as well as knowledge about the dance world for the students who are
selected. The principal dancers, many who are just young high school age children, are among some of the top scoring dancers in
regional and nation level competitions. Many of these dancers continue dance in college and receive dance/arts scholarships. Some of
her dancers have gone on to dance professionally as well in the world of modern dance, musical theatre, Disney and ballet companies.
Dancers are chosen for the company based on their level of ablility as well as their dedication to thier regular classes. It is a
privilage to be a part of this elite group of dancers and have such opportunites given to them at no additional cost for tuition.
Younger students are able to audition for children's roles when a ballet has such openings. It is a great way for the youth of the
studio to see what can come fomr hard work.
The Braintree Ballet Company is something Ms. Kelley is most proud of in all her years teaching. It is an honor for her to work
with such wonderfully talented dancers and watch them shine on stage!
