Ballet and Body is a new dance training school and fitness center which opened in September, 2015. The Director, Roberta Senn owns a school in Great Neck which has been producing dancers for 33 years. Our purpose is to promote a love of classical ballet and other forms of dance, and offer unique barre oriented fitness classes on the Upper East Side. Our goal is to offer the highest standard of dance education to children, teens, and adults. Dance offers immeasurable benefits including discipline, concentration, stamina, flexibility, grace, and more! Our esteemed faculty is made up of teachers from the worlds finest ballet companies such as the Bolshi, Kirov, Royal Danish Ballet, and the NYCB. Our teachers give their love and expertise in a supportive and encouraging setting where learning is meaningful, but fun.
Our classes include Mommy n' Me, Pre-Ballet, all levels of classical ballet training and pointe. For adults, we offer Beginner Ballet, Intermediate Ballet, Street Jazz, Tap, Ballroom Dance and Argentine Tango. Our fitness division focuses on our Ballet Body Fitness class, which is an elegant form of exercise set to classical music that teaches students to stand up, elongate, and achieve the grace and posture of a dancer. 25 minutes of ballet and yoga stretches is followed by 35 minutes of REAL ballet barre, the actual exercises that dancers do to warm up, strengthen their muscles, and prepare them to dance. Come dance with us in our stunning sunlit new space on the Upper East Side!
