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.

Children and their parents/caregivers share the joys of dance and music through song and movement while learning group and individual participation. Classes are 45 minutes long.

Children are introduced to the beginnings of ballet in a positive and creative environment. Classes focus on developing strength, flexibility, musicality and joy of dance. Each class is 45 minutes long. Children age 6 entering first grade in the current school year will be in the Primary Class.

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.
