For more than 50 years The Manhattan Ballet School has inspired children to achieve creativity and individuality through the art of ballet. From Beginning Ballet to Advanced and Performance Level, the Manhattan Ballet School's curriculum nurtures the child's joy of movement and strengthens growing young bodies into sculptures of self-confidence. We offer classes from Creative Movement to Advanced and Performance Levels. The Creative Movement Program is for children ages 3 - 4 focusing on sparking their imagination and creativity through music and colorful props. In the Pre-Ballet Program children ages 5-6 are introduced to the basic principles of Ballet Technique. Professional Graded Ballet Program: Through the elementary years, children's studies allow them to acquire proficiency and skill in Ballet Technique. As the child advances to secondary school and college, technique is supplemented with education in choreographers, composers and variation workshops. We also offer Artimes Day Camp. This is a summer program that incorporates Ballet, Arts and Crafts, Drama and Jazz. Children are taken to Art Museums weekly and, weather permitting, recess in Central Park. We now offer Beginner Ballet Fitness classes designed specifically for girls in middle and high school, ages 11 to 16 and an Adult Program a way for adults to enjoy the art form of ballet in a relaxed way. Combining stretch and ballet movement, this class provides an excellent workout.
