Open Monday through Saturday


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 wanted to thank you for a great year and to tell you how wonderful the show was.  ALL of the kids looked amazing and my family thoroughly enjoyed it!

SBC Parent

Wow! The show was fantastic! So much talent, wonderful choreography, great costumes, music, and lighting. I was so impressed! And so was everyone who came to see lila.

My parents always had subscriptions to ABT and city ballet and I went often throughout my adult life. My mom and I both felt the level and quality of the work was very professional. I enjoyed some of the older girls dances as much as many of those ny city ballet dance performances.

My hat goes off to you and the other instructors!

Thanks so much for all your dedication, talent and hard work!

Thank you Scarlett and your wonderful staff for doing what you do!  It has been a pleasure to be part of the SBC family! We will always recommend your program!  Because of SBC's highly skilled and dedicated teachers and numerous performance opportunities, our daughter was prepared to accept attendance at world renowned ballet intensives,  graduated with a BS in Dance and has had several teaching opportunities.

Thank you for all that you do.  The foundation that you are laying for our children to strive for excellence, artistry and commitment is an incredible gift.

Scarlett and the Saugerties Ballet Center nurtured our son’s desire and ability to dance in a warm, positive atmosphere.  He not only learned technique but also discipline, etiquette, and respect which carried over into his daily life.

World-class ballet training with big heart in a nurturing environment.  I owe Saugerties Ballet Center, Ulster Ballet Company, Scarlett and the many loving teachers and dancers who are part of this organization my start in ballet.  The technical instruction, performance opportunities, and support I received here ultimately allowed me to make a life-long career in ballet.  Thanks to SBC, I have attended many of the top ballet school’s summer intensive programs, danced professionally with Miami City Ballet and currently teach as a faculty member at Miami City Ballet School.  Whether pursuing a career in dance or simply enjoying the benefits of ballet, SBC is an excellent place to be.

Saugerties Ballet Center is an amazing ballet studio. Scarlett Fiero and all the teachers are so loving and caring to each student. They teach the technique and the artistry needed   For the more advanced student and provide several performance opportunities every year. Speaking from the heart this is not just a dance studio to me and my children, it is our second home and has become a loving part of our family that will be with us forever. I am beyond blessed that I walked through the door of SBC six years ago for my Daughter to take a class, it has opened up a world of opportunity for both my children.
