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

Rating: 5 stars  

I will never forget the day that my daughter went to Ballet Tech to audition for their scholarship program. She was in the third grade at the time and had very limited experience in ballet. She had many question about the audition in which the teachers answered. I felt like they truly appreciated and understood her curiosity. After she began the scholarship program, they would pick her up every Monday morning and brimg her to their facility. She was so excited about this because it made her feel special that she had been chosen to take part in such a wonderful opportunity. I was amazed at how this organization put forth the effort to pick her up, give her a ballet class, and return her back to school by lunch time. It was like a dream come true as such opportunities are almost immpossible to find! At this point my daughter is now in the 5th grade and has grown more confident in her own abilities. I now also have a son who has been through the scholarship program and now attends the school as a 4th grader. I strongly feel that if there were more organizations around like Ballet Tech, student achievement would be greater as I have even noticed improvement in my children academically. Ballet Tech has enriched the quality of our lives!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how it has enhanced our lives by offering quality instruction in ballet, and opportunities that my family normally wouldn't have exposure to.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

witnessing the growth and development of my children in their ballet technique. Several times a year I have had the opportunity to attend an open House event in which I could actually see what they do in class.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

very experienced professionals in the field of ballet as well as parents who volunteered and were truly committed to the mission of the organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build a playground/facility in which the children could run and play during thier recess.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
