Our Mission

【Mission 1】

Provide comprehensive education and personal guidance to ballet dancers from childhood

Everybody will be able to dance ballet well.  The key is how you are trained and instructed.

But ballet is not just about dancing. 

From the moment we are involved in ballet, we become the “voices” of the historical comprehensive art performance which is said to have originated during the Renaissance.   

People who succeed art is required to have many more traits than just being able to dance - dignity, grace, sophistication, musicality, compassion, teamwork and much more.

All of those combined contributed to inner beauty and lead to beautiful external appearances.

You will surely be attractive as an individual even outside of ballet. 

​​Eastchester New York Ballet is the place for you to foster yourself.

【Mission 2】

Contribute to the local community and people through art

Art has the power to enrich people’s lives.

We aim to provide well-being by performing ballet at local hospitals, schools and elderly homes, invite children to theatres free of charge, and create various opportunities to get involved in art. 

【Mission 3】

To be a comprehensive ballet school

It is not uncommon for students to face severe challenges that maybe unique to ballerinas through the course of mastering ballet.  Challenges could include physical changes during adolescence, competition and comparison to others if you participate in competitions, dietary restrictions just to name a few.

We stand closely with each student and their families, and will work with professionals to provide resources for support from all aspects in order to  provide a life-long asset. 

- Dietary guidance from nutritionists

- Mental trainings

- Coaching sessions
