BACK TO SCHOOL
Now in its 34th year, the Ohman School of Ballet was founded by Frank Ohman, former soloist of NYC Ballet and one of the few remaining direct links to the legendary George Balanchine. The school is open to all students who wish to study classical ballet and serves as a training ground for promising young dancers. It is a not-for-profit, non-recital facility with three spacious studios in a convenient location. The school, together with its company New York Dance Theatre, presents the largest Nutcracker production on Long Island annually at Hofstra University.
