Justine Maletta studied dance at Saugerties Ballet Center since she was 3 years old and has performed with the Ulster Ballet Company since 1998. She is a principal dancer with the Ulster Ballet Company and has danced in major roles including the role of The Spirit of Christmas Past in UBC’s annual production of “A Christmas Carol”. Justine had an internship with the Walt Disney World company in Orlando, Florida where she worked in Entertainment and is a graduate of SUNY New Paltz with a degree in Interpersonal/Intercultural Communication. Justine began teaching dance at Saugerties Ballet Center in 2008 and we are fortunate to have her vibrant energy and talent to help guide our young student’s pursuit of dance.

What people are saying about us…

Once again I was smiling deep inside witnessing the Love of Dance emanating from the stage from the littlest ballerina to the oldest dancers.  It is truly evident, the love shared within your dance family.  The respect teacher to student allows for deep respect back, student to teacher, in a time when such things are rare to see.

My thanks for your efforts and integrity, and that of your Clan of teachers.  Quite the tribe you have.  So glad Robin is part of it.
