Ballet Tech Eliot Feld The School NYC Public School for Dance Kids Dance Performances Facts

| the ballet tech school | auditions |

In 1977, on the number 3 train, on his way to the studio for a working day of choreographing, Eliot Feld shared a train car with a class of elementary public school children on a field trip and at that moment the idea for the Ballet Tech School was born. The idea was this: that children attending New York City elementary public schools should have the opportunity to study ballet dancing, tuition-free, dependent only upon their talent and passion for dancing.

Ballet Tech views the children of the New York City public school system as a vast and underutilized human resource. And that resource has the potential to invigorate classical ballet dancing in a uniquely diverse and American way and at the same time realize the potential of children traditionally excluded from the venerable art of the ballet.

Ballet Tech is a New York City public school, grades 4-8, offering its students a quality academic education and intensive and rigorous ballet training designed to develop professional dancers.
