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.
this is the worst school ever. My daughter went to this school and when i put her in a prep school, she was failng. this school really needs to improve on academics. Im glad i got my daughter into a prep school earlly enough or she would have failed. This school is horrible.
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.
