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.

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.

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.

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!!!

Ballet Tech is an awesome school. My daughter started last January and she really likes it. The small class room settings allow the teachers the chance to get to know the students and to work with them individually. The ballet classes give students strength, flexibility and poise. The staff are always nice and courteous. The school keeps the parents in touch and involved. Putting my daughter in Ballet Tech was the best decision I made.

Ballet Tech is a one of a kind public school in New York City. Ballet Tech Foundation and Board of Ed worked together to create a school for gifted children to receive professional classic ballet training on full scholarship. This is a life changing experience for my daughter. Beautiful facility with strong academics, a very small school creates a warm family like community. If you think your child has a potential, make sure your child will audition. The school starts from 4th grade.

My daughter went to this school from grade 5 to grade 8. The small class sizes and school size was beneficial for her. She did very well on the regents math exam in the 8th grade.

My son has been attending Ballet Tech for the last year and has been accepted into the Middle school. I have never seen him happier. The boy gets up at 6 am and leaves at 7am so he 'can be very early'. He loves school and that is all thanks to Ballet Tech. The academic program is phenomenal and I have seen my son go from being average and at times struggle in academics to now trying his hardest to get straight A's.He has worked hard and has been on the honor roll for the past year. The dance is by far a blessing and we could not be more grateful for this opportunity. Ballet Tech has instilled values in him that anything is possible if you want it and hard work pays off. Thank you so much Ballet Tech we look foward to another year.
