About The Ballet School Of Stamford

History

The Ballet School of Stamford was founded in 1998 as a non-profit organization and over the years has earned a reputation of nurturing young dancers through a disciplined and focused training program that brings out the best of their natural talent. Our faculty is a dedicated and knowledgeable group of professionals who are passionate about teaching. The outreach program "Dance for All” began the first week that the Ballet School of Stamford opened its doors almost 20 years ago, with a class at St. Lukes LifeWorks and has continued successfully by partnering with other social service organizations to ensure we are reaching young people who can benefit from our programs.
