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

Rating: 5 stars  

WHY I GIVE TO BALLET TECH

Forty years ago, Eliot Feld set out to create the nation's only public school for dance. Ballet Tech, in partnership with the NYC Department of Education, is the result of his vision: to seek out city kids who aren't familiar with the world of ballet though have talent, the physique, and an enthusiasm for movement. It is wonderful to see this school full of dancers that LOOK and SOUND like New Yorkers -- all the colors, languages, and cultures of our city. And because of the generosity of others, every student has a full scholarship, with rigorous training in state-of-the-art dance studios and live piano accompaniment, free dance clothes & shoes, an academic program of high standards, and a positive school culture. My son and his fellow students have grace, poise, musicality, confidence, and discipline, as well as a passion for and appreciation of the arts. And the school is half boys, how cool is that! #BalletTech #NYCPublicSchoolForDance #DanceNYC #GivingTuesday #MyGivingStory #WhyIGive
