WHAT'S IT ALL ABOUT?
inspiration and developmental approach
results in an integrated, and
dynamic dance program for
every age - in downtown SoHo.
The serious study of classical ballet begins between 8-12 years old, when some studentsbegin to be physically and mentally ready for the discipline, strenuous work, as well as the math of ballet.
The age at which classical instruction begins is not as important as making a good start with a good teacher, and being able to concentrate on the activities. Only regular participation, persistence, along with much repetition and practice make a dancer, but there are many additional benefits to the study of dance that produce good habits for life.

dance, ballet and performance.Offered in twice, or three-times per week semesters
*Class offerings respond to neighborhood demand, so the offerings do fluctuate.

SOCCER BOY BALLET Testimonial:A mother writes: "Henry told me that ballet is his second-favorite thing to do after ice hockey. He ranked it above baseball and tennis, both of which he loves. Soccer is a distant fifth. Could have knocked me over with a feather."
