Summer Programs, Parent Testimonials


“My daughter thoroughly enjoys attending the GBA summer intensive, she loves the rigor and the progression she makes by attending on a daily basis.” Alessandra L.- Parent

“If your child genuinely wants to improve his or her classical ballet technique, and be inspired by amazing & passionate Vagonova method instructors, the GBA Summer Intensive is the place for you. Add in the small class-size and camaraderie of other committed dancers and it is truly the best package you can find.” Mimi C.- Parent

“Last summer my daughter trained for five weeks in the GBA Summer Intensive. Much like the well-known prominent Summer Intensives throughout the country, GBA offered a program designed to accelerate a young dancers training by intensive daily classes in technique, pointe, variations, modern and character dance. The Vaganova training was taught by the Artistic Director and the year-round faculty of the school. Unique to this program was the small class size which facilitated the development of individual attention and understanding of each dancer by the teachers. This directly translated into progress in the classroom and a strong rapport between students and teachers. Greenwich Ballet Academy’s convenient location in Port Chester, NY also enabled my daughter to train all summer.” Jeanne H. – Parent
