What parents have to say

“Ballet Fantastique is top-notch, along with attention to detail, first-rate instruction, and that age-appropriate dash of imagination and sparkle!”

—Janna, parent of Anne and Kate, ages 6 and 4

"Thank you so much for teaching Isabel during her first year and a half of ballet. She has come a long way from that shy girl who used to cry in class! She has really blossomed with your patient and loving teaching style. She has also received excellent technical training. We will forever be grateful to you!"

—Deb, parent of Isabel, age 7


WHAT TO WEAR/BRING: 

  • See Getting Ready for Class » for attire guidelines.

  • NOTE: We recommend that dancers come to the studio with dance clothes on, ready to dance. However, students should wear appropriate street shoes and a cover-up for travel to/from the studio: ballet slippers should never be worn outside, and a cover-up should always be worn.

  • Please label dance slippers and other dance equipment with student initials, so that they can be returned to you if left behind.

  • Dancers are also welcome to bring a water bottle (please label with initials).

  • Street shoes are not permitted in the studio on the professional dance floor; at our Annex Studio, please note that we ask kids and dancers to remove street shoes in the waiting area to keep the floor where our young children stretch and put on their shoes clean and safe. Thanks for your understanding!

  • Hair should be neatly pulled back.

BALLET STUDIO COURTESIES:

  • Try your best to always be on time for class.

  • Strollers should be folded whenever possible and should not be left blocking walkways.

  • Children should not run on the premises.

  • Please be sure to clean up after eating.

  • We do our best to keep the school a nut-free zone. Please only bring nut-free snacks into the ballet school.

  • Valuables should not be left unattended. The school is not responsible for lost articles.

  • We appreciate your help in keeping the studio clean and safe.

  • NOTE: We've found in many years of dance education that children do best in dance class when parents and family members leave the studio (and waiting area space) during class to maximize focus and minimize distraction for all young students. Thank you for helping us promote student learning.
