“Greenwich Ballet Academy has a professional but nourishing environment for young dancers.  Students participate in a focused program where they see quick progression of skills and technique, stemming from their hard work.  The program and teachers encourage and prepare students to do their best. Students are empowered with confidence, beautiful execution of skills, and a chance to perform twice annually to highlight their achievements and those of their peers.”

“Even as a fourth grader, my daughter knew the difference between true classical ballet training and a recreational version that did not fulfill her. She asked for a change and we found GBA.  Six years later, she will not go anywhere else, despite the fact that she does not have ballet as a future goal, and the training is intensive. Knowing that she is doing something at the highest level of excellence simply fulfills, engages and maintains her feeling challenged.”

“The Greenwich Ballet Academy is an amazing dance school.  The classes are small and the students are friendly.  The teachers are very professional and give you the attention you need to improve your ballet technique.  The staff works very hard to organize special events for the students at GBA.  They allow the students to gain experience in the world of ballet.”

“The Greenwich Ballet Academy performance was a fantastic performance.  This was my first performance with GBA and it was very organized.  The stage was wonderful and so were the dancers.  The excerpts from La Bayadère were performed beautifully by the students.  Irina Dvorovenko looked stunning with the dancers as well as the other guest dancers.  The performance really demonstrated the abilities of the students and showcased their talents brilliantly.”
