The Ballet School of Stamford realizes that now, more than ever, organizations that teach our children compassion, discipline and the feeling of success earned from hard work in a safe and encouraging environment are necessary. The arts bring beauty into our lives and teach us that everyone regardless of their background can work together to create something meaningful.
We believe our school makes a real difference in the lives of our students. We know how important it is to support children’s passions. In 2016 the Ballet School of Stamford taught 3,137 hours of classes for 265 students ages 3 to 18 years old, awarded $105,000 in scholarships to 89 students and presented high quality performances to 6755 audience members including 1542 school students who attended Sleeping Beauty: A Tale of Good and Evil at the Palace Theatre at no expense to their school our 15th annual free school performance. You can provide a full year scholarship for $700 for a lower school student or $4,000 for an advanced student. When students graduate they are not only well trained dancers with solid techniques but disciplined, focused and open-minded young adults who will embrace hard work and physical activity as the way to reach their goals.
