  1. HI
    I was wondering if you are still holding ballet classes if there is a possibility to try a class or watch a class. I’m looking for a good ballet school for my daughter, we moved up from westchester, and I’m not familiar with the studios in the area. She is 12 and has been on point for 1 year, but has 3 years of pre-point training. Her previous studio closed, the director has retired. If your school year has finished, are you holding summer classes and would it be possible to try 1 class before we decide to sign up.

    Thank you in advance

    • Hello! Yes! I am sure we will have something to accommodate your daughter. We are currently on break before our summer sessions start, but I am sure we can find something for her to try this summer! If you would like to give us a call at 845-896-1888 or email us at, we would love to discuss your options for her! Hope to hear from you soon!
