Review for Ballet Tech Foundation, Inc., New York, NY, USA
Ballet Tech is amazing and inspiring in it's purpose and methods.
Being able to learn to dance is something that requires parents' time and money, often more than what many families can provide.
To have your child placed in a challenging, purposeful dance program is usually something limited to parents who have money for many, many lessons and the time to bring their children there and back, and perhaps even professional experience to help them understand how to find these programs and prepare their children for them. Ballet Tech seeks to level that playing field somewhat, to open doors to children who might otherwise never even know those doors exist. I love that purpose.
Ballet Tech is also so wonderful in that both the academic and dance teachers know how their instructional worlds are joined—how their students' characters are being developed by their dance training, how their brains are being wired from practice, repetition, and results. The teachers there are wonderfully encouraging, even as they are challenging the students daily.
My daughter is attending Ballet Tech and has never been happier in her educational life. She has always been a good student, but at Ballet Tech she feels so safe, included, and inspired to strive for her best. It really is remarkable to see her, and her peers, shine!
Ballet Tech is unique and wonderful, and I hope that their example inspires other schools in the arts.
