YOUNG DANCERS DIVISION (18 MONTHS - 6 YEARS)
BAE's teaching philosophy is based upon the premise that children thrive in a loving, positive and nurturing environment. Our programs for young children are designed to incorporate learning, creativity, musicality and fun. Classes are taught by highly experienced teachers who all have a special love for teaching our youngest dancers. Each class also has a co-teacher and live musical accompaniment. Petit Dancer, Pre-Ballet and Tap classes are accompanied by pianist. Modern classes are accompanied by percussionist.

BALLET BIRTHDAY PARTIES
Celebrate your child's birthday with a ballet theme party at BAE for an unforgettable day. Ages 2-6.
Your child's special day begins with a fun warm-up that leads into a personalized class with a festive birthday theme. The children dance a ballet birthday story narrated by the teacher. Each dancer receives a crown or wand to dance with and keep. Two studios are reserved for your child's ballet birthday - one for dancing and the other will be set up with balloons, tables and chairs for cake and refreshments once the dancing is done. Each party includes two highly trained, energetic teachers, a party host and a pianist. We take care of the set-up and clean-up. Parents supply the paper goods, goodie bags, cake and any additional refreshments.
Birthday Party Prices
15 children and under: $895
16-20 children: $975
To schedule a birthday party, please contact our party coordinator Stacy Soroczynski at info@baenyc,com.
