At a cost of approximately $4 million per year, Ballet Tech integrates an academic education with intensive ballet training.

With academic classrooms on site at 890 Broadway, students take a rigorous schedule of dance classes as part of the regular school day. The New York City Department of Education provides academic faculty, supporting staff, and the core academic curriculum, which aligns with NYS standards for learning. Ballet Tech provides the dance training, dancewear, and supporting programs including visual arts classes, an after-school program, performing opportunities with Kids Dance, and transportation.

Your generous support will help the Ballet Tech Foundation provide:

•   Tuition-free dance training
•   Complete dance attire for each student
•   Visual arts classes
•   Ongoing maintenance of our dance studios, pianos and classrooms
•   After-school program
•   Transportation

Ballet Tech received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator and a 2023 Platinum Seal of Transparency from Candid. These awards recognize our strong financial health, commitment to accountability and transparency. We extend deep appreciation to the institutions whose generous support fosters the creation of innovative new ballets and keeps our students dancing.
