Ballet School Of Stamford
September 29, 2010

I enrolled my daughter at age 5. She is 14 now and has attended each session (plus summer sessions)continuously. The BSS staff has become an extended family to us, they are genuinely concern and dedicated in grooming a well rounded dancer/person. The program is reflective of the New York City Ballet in that the BSS requires uniform dress for each level achieved, in addition to Bun Day, where the student is taught the correct way to style her hair in a bun. I have seen a young duckling grow into a beautiful swan. Because of ballet my daughter has gained confidence in many areas of her life. She has established longterm friendships and new found friends from around the world. She has become exposed to such genres as classical music and foreign languages. I believe the physical benefits of attending the BSS will serve her well into her adult life. We are grateful to have found the BSS program and recommend the school to every community.
