Student News Updates

We are pleased to announce our students were accepted to wonderful summer programs, including Carolina Ballet, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, Chicago, Cincinnati, Nashville, Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, and Walnut Hill. 


Congratulations to our two senior dance students. Conneticut College and Dickinson College are so lucky to have you. We will miss you! 



"I feel so fortunate to have found this wonderful adult ballet program at the HCA, and the community of dancers within it. More than anything is my deepest gratitude of discovering the program under the direction of Ms. Wilson. Her teaching and expertise is of the highest caliper, equal measures warm and embracing and also challenging and technical."
-Emma Katrina Bartolini


"I connected with Jessica Wilson when I was nine years old. Previously my mom and I had been moving around studios but immediately I knew that because of the rigourous yet warm environment I would not be switching round teachers or studios again. I studied with Mrs. Wilson from age 9 to 18. Even beyond that time she continued to be invested through my growth through continuously offering teaching and performing opportunities. She easily has been the most influential teacher in my life. Mrs. Wilson taught me structure and discipline in ways that encouraged me to constantly push myself; yet still find enjoyment and love through the art of dance. She would allocate her time to each individual student without power for compromising the trajectory of the group as a whole. I'm grateful to have met and learned from such a great leader."
-Olivia Coombs, alumna and dancer with Boston Dance Theater


"Jessica Wilson has been with our family since the first time my daughter, at the age of four, walked into the studios of Ballet Workshop New England (formerly on Hayden Rowe). Over the intervening years Jessica's location has changed and we have always moved with her. It is more than fitting that she is bringing the quality of her instruction back to Hopkinton at the HCA. Jessica has had many successes teaching ballet. Yes, her dancers have become professionals and have advanced in the dance world. Equally important, she has guided all of her students with the same standard of excellence. Over the years we have seen every manner of dance lover mature and grow under Jessica's guidance. She creates performance opportunities for everyone and gorgeous stage productions. What an incredible opportunity this is to have Jessica back in Hopkinton at the HCA."
