Ms. Shamblin is exceptional! Each year she takes the "diamonds in the rough" 4th and 5th grade boys and transforms them into stunningly beautiful dancers!

The small class size certainly helps give the teachers the ability to get to know each student in depth and this shows. They are quick to reach out with news - good, bad, and antidotal.

There is homework every night with varying levels of difficulty. Assignments seems to be always engaging and relevant to what the kids are learning.

The very nature of ballet develops these qualities in students, especially a strong sense of determination and work ethic.

Yes absolutely. This is apparent throughout the school in discussions and especially in the ways the staff interacts with students.

The school is small and close knit. The children are very aware of each other and develop a sense of belonging and exude compassion and empathy towards each other. I have seen all grades welcome the new 4th grade class each year with interest and warmth. First Fridays are a big deal in the school too.

There is a great focus on respect - the students respect for each other and their teachers, respect for art, respect for differences, all part of the curriculum and every school day from start to finish.

My son has had a fantastic experience at Ballet Tech and is hoping to continue through high school. At first, he was especially appreciative of how much ballet helped him excel in sports (he is now on 3 high level competitive teams in 3 different sports). Over the past few years, he has developed a true love for dance which has been remarkable to see. It is also very clear that the discipline of ballet has helped with his academics. The school's program is challenging and comprehensive with plenty of support when needed from the teachers and especially the excellent principal, Mr. O'Neill. We could not be happier with our experience with this tiny, warm, and wonderful school community.
