I loved all 5 years of being a student at Ballet Tech. I started off in the 4th grade with little knowledge of classical ballet and honestly, a questionable amount of interest in the area. I graduated last year loving the art and the training I received here helped me with my decision to continue dancing in high school. It's also been amazing seeing how much the school improved and evolved in the time I was there, with some traditions each year and some newly introduced ideas and activities as well. The teachers really get to know and engage with each of the students, so that they are able to further focus on their strengths and help the students to grow academically, artistically, and personally. The school is incredibly unique and I haven't heard of one that can compare to its environment and what it has to offer. I will never regret attending this school and would definitely recommend it to anyone who would even consider trying out dance as a hobby.
I am so greatfull that my son is part of that community .From both side academic and the ballet program they care about the kids like there own always making sure that they excel good grades i cannot thank them enough for helping me raise a little boy in NYC public school wonderfull staff i wish he could stay there up to 12th grade.
A very unique and wonderful school! My daughter loves it so much she does not want to leave the school. She enjoys it thoroughly. The teachers, staffs, and PTA executive board are all wonderful! A very family oriented environment. They always welcome you. I love that she can excel both academically and artistically at the same time. As a parent I am very satisfied.
This school has a family atmosphere between the kids in all grades and the faculty and staff. Academically the School achieves more than any other middle school I know.
I love this school. I am glad to have been a part of the wonderful academic and dance program that they offered me. I am not currently at the school anymore but from what i hear from my friends who are still there, it sound like they are progressing on and doing wonderful things for the students.
It offers great academics and ballet instruction from wonderful teachers. The school lets the kids be artistic and expressive
Ballet Tech is one incredible and unique public school. It has given my daughter Keila the greatest opportunity, skills and tools to grow and improve herself as a student, daughter, young lady and a person. She has excelled beyond our expectations. The school has taught Keila to be diligent, disciplined and dedicated to both dance and her regular studies. The teachers teach with EXCELLENCE and true dedication towards the children. The love and care of the whole entire school staff is felt from the moment you walk in, wether is to drop your child off, attend a PTA meeting or a Parents Teacher Conference. This school is a true role model for all children that attend it. Ballet Tech should be used as a role model many other public school through out NYC. The character of this school will defenitely leave a positive mark in the hearts of the students and their parents for many years to come.
Ballet Tech is the most and great public school! I'm so glad to have my son attend Ballet Tech. Bellet tech is the number 11111111111111111111111

This school has wonderful teachers,students,and more! This school also not only gives education but also gives students chances to be a dancer. All I have to say to this school is bravo!!!
It teaches courtesy, discipline, dance and academics in a caring and professional atmosphere.
The students work hard, the teachers are demanding but kind, and the results are terrific.
I love the smallness of the school and the sense of caring and community. Also, I love the high level of academic and artistic achievement.
It is a place where children solidly learn their academics alongside the values of grace, creativity, and self-expression.
Ballet Tech is the type of school that really bring the inner-person out of you as a dancer as well as a person. The feel of this school is also very homey because were all just a big family there, that make's kids want to come to school eveyday. You can't get no better then that.
Ballet Tech finds dancers who didn't know they were dancers, and teaches them to be what they are .. .
My nephew attends Ballet Tech and he is really loving it! He's learned so much in the academic field as well as dance. The school is great!
Ballet Tech is a wonderful educational experience as well as a fun, different and healthy way for children to exercise.
My daughter had two wonderful academic years and two and a half years of ballet training at Ballet Tech. She made a lot of friends while she was there. The school's administration and faculty staff are great; they care about the students and show how to be respectful of others and their opinions, which many public schools may practice. The teachers are creative in their style of teaching; they make sure each student understand what they are learning. It's amazing how the Principal knows every student by name and, they greet him with a smile when they see him. My daughter has gained confidence in her abilities while she attended Ballet Tech. I am glad she was given an opportunity of attending a specialized dance school like Ballet Tech.
Ballet Tech is an amazing school! It has given my daughter the opportunity and introduction that she otherwise wouldn't have experienced. The small classes academically has helped her excel, and the Ballet classes has given her a tremendous physical self-confidence. Throughout her four years it's been a joy to see the friends that she has met and the sheer exuberance she displays while on her way to school. Seeing the team-player she is and her confidence with her abilities is a big plus. Thank you to the teachers and staff!!!
