Review for Ballet Tech Foundation, Inc., New York, NY, USA
I am a parent of a dancer who is currently a student at Ballet Tech, NYC Public School for Dance. My daughter has been a student at the school for three years. Ballet Tech offers my daughter a unique and a once in a lifetime opportunity where she receives rigorous ballet training in conjunction with a full academic curriculum from 4th to 8th grade. The program is designed to train students achieve academic success as well as becoming professional dancers.
Ballet Tech’s rare program not only teaches students to be successful but also provides students like my daughter an opportunity to receive pre-professional level of ballet training tuition free. Mr. Eliot Feld’s (founder and director of the school) belief of teaching ballet to anyone who wants to dance truly makes the school a Cinderella story in the sense of giving an opportunity for students like my daughter, receive excellent academic and pre-professional ballet training tuition-free, and for parents like me to witness my daughter’s progression into a talented, responsible, and motivated young lady. Without Ballet Tech’s free pre-professional training, my daughter would not have the opportunity to further sharpen her talents and skills as a dancer, as I could never financially afford enrolling her to a ballet school. Through Ballet Tech and Mr. Feld’s vision of providing ballet to anyone who has the innate abilities, students are given the chance to learn the beautiful art form of ballet and develop an appreciation of the arts for free.
