Get More Information

Ballet is a wonderful form of exercise, and now, after 20 years of teaching in Westchester County, Christian Claessens, former soloist with The Dutch National Ballet and former director of the Scarsdale Ballet Studio and The Purchase Youth Ballet, has opened a ballet school. All classes are taught by Christian Claessens, and follow a philosophy of teaching that reflects his European training, which began at the Conservatoire de la Monnaie. Standards of discipline and cultivating a uniform style are emphasized, as well as teaching students the art of ballet as a fine art.
