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.
I would just like to take a moment to thank you personally for the fantastic performance! It was our first UPAC show and it was incredible!! We look forward to many, many more! Thank you for offering such a wonderful school here in Saugerties - I am so glad my daughter is a part of it. She loves it!!!
Thank you Scarlett!!! We are all so fortunate to have you and the Saugerties Ballet Center!
