Parent Testimonials:
Ballet School NY is an excellent choice for a dance school. My child has studied here for 3+ years and I have been impressed with all aspects of the school…. This is one of the only dance schools in NYC that teaches the Cecchetti technique, a very methodical and careful method for teaching ballet. Having a solid foundation in Cecchetti technique prepares a young dancer for almost any type of dancing in the future and teaches them to dance intelligently and safely. Diana Byer, the school director and Artistic Director of the affiliated New York Theatre Ballet (which is also a treasure), offers excellent training and performance opportunities for qualified students through the company. The school is a gem, with live musical accompaniment for most classes, and a serious but not overly competitive atmosphere.

BSNY has everything you need in a great ballet school: 1) Serious technical and artistic training (not just play time in tutus) 2) Dedicated, caring teachers who prioritize your child's well-being first and foremost 3) A hands-on artistic director (and founder) whose values of hard work, responsibility, creativity and generosity permeate the school. 4) An associated professional chamber company that allows BSNY students to perform in select professional productions. My two children LOVE this place, and they have become better individuals because of their time there.

My daughter has been studying dance at BSNY for 6 years and it has been a wonderful experience. She receives serious ballet training, a chance to perform with NYTB, and life lessons that she would experience nowhere else. She feels like this is her family and the friendships she has made here are very special. This is a nurturing school where your child will receive serious ballet instruction under the watchful eye of artistic director and her experienced teaching staff. It is the perfect place to expose your budding dancer to ballet.

Ballet School NY (BSNY) was founded by artistic director Diana Byer in 1978 as the official training school of New York Theatre Ballet. The school teaches dance as a total art form, developing strong technical skill and discipline. Following the Cecchetti syllabus, classes emphasize music, theatricality, gesture and style. For the advanced and professional level student classes in modern, theater dance, pointe, variations and repertory round out the training curriculum. Ballet School NY provides teaching assistants in every class. Small class size guarantees highly individualized instruction. For qualified students, the school’s unique relationship with the Company provides performing experience throughout the year in ballets featuring roles for children.

New York Theatre Ballet (NYTB), founded in 1978 by artistic director Diana Byer, is the most widely seen chamber ballet company in the United States and has been hailed by The New York Times as “an invaluable company.” NYTB is dedicated to inspiring a love of dance in diverse audiences through performances of chamber ballet masterpieces and bold new works, as well as innovative one-hour ballets for children, all at affordable prices.

By pairing the ballets of legendary creators with those of contemporary visionaries, NYTB brings a new understanding and appreciation of dance. The approach to live performance for children is groundbreaking and unique. New York Theatre Ballet offers an annual series of hour-long ballets tailored to the attention span of young audience members, while offering high production values and clever choreography sophisticated enough for discerning parents.

NYTB is committed to reaching underserved audiences by performing in small cities throughout the U.S. Its professional school provides ballet training based on the Cecchetti syllabus. Classes are offered at affordable prices. Scholarships are awarded to talented homeless and underserved children along with support for well-rounded learning.
