Review for Ballet Tech Foundation, Inc., New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I Love the Ballet Tech school. The kids! They are so beautiful. They are so lucky. They are picked up in buses from all five boroughs of New York City and brought to Broadway and 19th Street for dance classes. After a few years academic classes were added and the kids now spend the better part of their day here. Learning, eating, and Dancing. Most of these kids come from families who could never afford lessons, much less expose them to one of the finest dance facilities in the world. These are the gifted ones. Some will go on to dance professionally, others not. But what they learn here at Ballet Tech is incalculable. To discipline a free spirit, to demand that they focus, to show them how to work hard and dream towards beauty, is an undertaking of mountainous proportions. Take the energy for teaching one child and multiply it by hundreds. Now you have a galaxy of long lasting dedication, focus and hard work. What will happen? All of this is going into the future. These human beings with love, sweat, beauty and self knowledge in their veins. Eliot Feld’s broad vision in establishing the Ballet Tech School will have its tendrils out into the universe for years to come. I love Ballet Tech. The kids have no idea the magnitude of the gift, but I do.
