Ohman School Of Ballet-Summer Dance

"Adventures in Ballet" 2012 Summer Performance, Hofstra University

Now in its 34th year, the Ohman School of Ballet was founded by Frank Ohman, former soloist of New York City Ballet and is one of the few remaining direct links to the legendary

George Balanchine. The school opens its doors to all students who wish to study classical ballet and also serves as a training ground for promising young dancers. It is a not-for-profit, non-recital, state-of-the-art facility with 3 spacious studios with convenient location and ample parking. The school, together with its company New York Dance Theatre, presents the largest Nutcracker production on Long Island annually at Hofstra University, as well as spring/summer performance opportunities. For the very young student (beginning age 3) classes are taught by our early childhood dance education specialist. Formal ballet classes are offered at 5 levels from beginner to advanced in a nurturing atmosphere with an expert teaching staff headed up by Frank Ohman. While instilling joy and appreciation for this art form, it also builds confidence and focus in children that stays with them into adulthood. The primary goal of the Ohman School of Ballet teachers is to make each child the best dancer that he/she can be.
