You can't see any of the class but the facility is wonderful with a semi professional adult class occurring across the way to inspire little dancers. The teacher seems great and all the kids come out super happy and dancing. My little one loved dancing in her pink tutu outfit and can't wait to come back!
Founded in 2010 by Artistic Directors Gelsey Kirkland & Michael Chernov, the Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet’s mission is to foster a rebirth of dramatic storytelling in ballet through our academy programs that provide specialized training for gifted students from around the world, and through the development of the Gelsey Kirkland Ballet, a classically oriented Professional Studio Company capable of creating and performing new and dramatic works.
Gelsey Kirkland joined the New York City Ballet in 1968 at age fifteen at the invitation of George Balanchine. She was promoted to soloist in 1969 and again to principal in 1972. She went on to create leading roles in many of the great twentieth century ballets.
