Ballet School NY (BSNY) was founded by artistic director Diana Byer in 1978 as the official training school of New York Theatre Ballet.
The school teaches dance as a total art form, developing strong technical skill and discipline. Following the Cecchetti syllabus, classes emphasize music, theatricality, gesture and style. For the advanced and professional level student classes in modern, theater dance, pointe, variations and repertory round out the training curriculum. Ballet School NY provides teaching assistants in every class. Small class size guarantees highly individualized instruction.
For qualified students, the school’s unique relationship with the Company provides performing experience throughout the year in ballets featuring roles for children.
