Now celebrating its 50th year of superior training in classical ballet for children and adults, the Acton School of Ballet was founded in 1966 by Terre Burke at the Minuteman Building on Windsor Avenue in Acton.

Kathryn Anderson, a former soloist with Boston Ballet, took over the school in 1983 and in 1985 moved ASB to its current location in an historic building at 3 Spruce Street.

In June 2004 Ms. Anderson turned the directorship over to Chip Morris, currently the Artistic Director of Commonwealth Ballet and a long-time instructor at ASB. Ms. Anderson retired from active teaching in Spring 2006.
