This program sounds great on their website, but I don't know anyone who is going there to ask about the quality of training.They are supposedly a more contemporary based school,and I'm wondering if anyone has any first hand knowledge that they could share? :o Thanks!

My mom was a teacher there for many years, and I did substitute teaching there too. It is a good school, with good teachers. The ballet program has grown through the years and is very solid, despite it being a modern/contemporary school. For the company kids, ballet training is an important part of the program.


They have a nice summer program, where your child could "test the waters." I would recommend that you get a ticket for the end of year show that will be coming up soon, as it will give you a feel for the classes and the caliber of training.


Let me know if you have any more questions!

A well-meaning post was removed because it was not first-hand experience as required by BT4D policy. :)
