We have a new home in Beacon, New York!

Our Studio Address is:

850 Wolcott Avenue (Route 9D)

Beacon, NY 12508

Ph: 845-838-5454

We are located in the Rectory Hall of the Saint Luke's Episcopal Church. There is plenty of parking in the church parking lot, and our facility offers many things, including the Boniello Library, where parents can visit while class is going on.

The Lower School takes students who are beginning, or who have had prior training at other schools, and prepares them for eventual entry into the Upper School. The number of classes for this school depends on the age, natural ability, technical level and general art knowledge the student has. Entry into the Lower School begins at ages 8-16.

The Lower School requires students to take a set number of ballet technique classes each week, and one general arts class. The general arts class can be at another facility (piano lessons, art classes, etc.) upon review of that school's curriculum and pre-arranged credit. Otherwise they must take the general art class offered at the Academy or at another facility by arrangement through the Academy. A list of Academy registered classes is provided at orientation.

There are four levels in the Lower School (Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4) and movement to the next level is contingent on passing the ballet technique review panel and taking a written general arts exam or the equivalent.
