Both of my children participated in programs by the Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida for many years. My daughter learned to appreciate dance and classical music, developed discipline and self-confidence, and learned to teach young children their dances. The kids in this dance company also are very supportive of each other - just the opposite of the competitive environment in which some companies thrive. Finally, she had an opportunity to travel to Europe twice and to host exchange students at home through ballet. Those experience were incredibly enriching. Now in college, she continues to dance, which is both expressive and wonderful exercise. My son also took dance lessons for two years. Since he has autism, it was a tremendous opportunity for him to socialize with kids his age. The integration with typical kids was especially good for him, as he'd never been able to participate in sports and always wanted to do what his sister did. Arts Ballet Theatre is a blessing to this community.

No changes are needed at this time, except perhaps more funding! It is a well-run company, represents the entire multi-ethnic community in Greater Miami and is inclusive of children with disabilities.

I am a junior member of the Arts Ballet Theater of Florida. I have been a student of Vladimir Issaev since the age of five. He gives personal attention to all the details of our dancing and our developtment. Not only do we learn in the studio but we perform on stage. This is an amazing experience that is not offered in other dance schools. We all participate in community service projects that promote the arts and help to raise funds for the company. It is more than just a dance school/company, it is a family.

My 7-year old son absolutely loves this ballet school! The training is top-notch and we feel so fortunate to have them in South Florida. We drive over an hour each way from Palm Beach County 4 days a week for this incredible instruction and experience. The teachers are truly professionals who not only teach but have active dancing careers themselves. Bravo Arts Ballet Theatre of Florida!

As a parent, I am thankful that Vladimir Issaev's Arts Ballet Theatre exists. While other programs stress "fun", Arts Ballet Theatre puts serious discipline with fun as well into their programs. Many of their current staff are involved in higher education in the field of dance instruction and education at the University level. The staff at Arts Ballet Theatre definitely have the skills and training to effectively instruct children in dance. There is a window of opportunity for learning when children are young, and ballet instruction, following directions, attentive listening skills, healthy and happy play, correct posture, helps young children in their development. I was worried at first that my daughter would not be able to succeed in Ballet School. Mrs. Ruby Issaev said that the combination of music with dance has a magical effect on children and that magic helped my daughter succeed. It is a boon that Vladimir Issaev, the director of Arts Ballet is an exceptional choreographer who brings to the community wonderful ballets for the family that definitely reinforce love for the arts. Miami is fortunate to have Arts Ballet Theatre. I encourage you to read Arts Ballet Theatre's website and explore the various programs on offer. You will be impressed.

The Great!

My daughter participated in their Summer Program and her technique, her love for Ballet, poise, improved much more than expected. This is a complete program not only for the techniques but helps this young kids understand discipline, group work and camaraderie. Meeting other girls and boys from other countries and cultures adds to the learning as an individual. I would not think twice on recomending this program. Excelent work and beautiful staff
