    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
