Our esteemed faculty teach dancers at every level to think creatively, to see critically, and to utilize the skills developed through their classical training as a framework for excellence in all of their pursuits. Beyond the studio, dance training at Metropolitan Ballet Academy and Company develops valuable skills that help children succeed academically and in life.
