Massachusetts Academy of Ballet

When Charles and Rose Flachs decided transition out of successful careers as professional ballet dancers, they wanted to settle down in western New England. The Flachs found a mill building in Holyoke leasing space and knew it would be the perfect spot for a dance studio. This year, their studio, the Massachusetts Academy of Ballet, will turn fifteen. That anniversary will be marked this Saturday with a Gala at Open Square in Holyoke. Producer Dave Fraser visited the Academy and learned how the Flachs are sharing their passion for classical ballet with the next generation of dancers.
