About the Bayer Ballet Academy
and the Bayer Ballet Company
The Bayer Ballet Academy (BBA) was founded by Inna Bayer in 2005 to teach the Vaganova method of classical ballet instruction to young students on the Peninsula of the San Francisco Bay Area. The Bayer Ballet Company was launched in 2010 by Inna Bayer to provide serious, pre-professional performance opportunities for young dancers and a showcase for our unique blend of classical, character and contemporary dance. 

Miss Bayer, a seasoned professional ballet mistress with extensive teaching experience in Russia, the Ukraine, Israel and the USA, led the school through significant growth in just a few years. Ms. Bayer's students have demonstrated exceptional results. Our 2009 Winter show received an enthusiastic response from its audience of over 500 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts.

Students in the academy range from age three through pre-professional level. For those interested in pursuing dance careers or those for whom classical training is an end in itself, the Bayer Ballet Academy
offers excellent ballet training in a warm and friendly environment. Special attention is given to develop each child by focusing on their special strengths and talents. The school produces two shows each year, one in the Winter and one in the Spring and includes a youth company which also makes special appearances throughout the year.
