    Comment:  We've been very happy with Brooklyn Ballet, on Schermerhorn between Smith and Hoyt. We also live in Prospect Heights, and it's a 10-minute trip on the B41 bus. My 3 year-old is currently in "Pre-Ballet I" with Nancy on Sunday mornings, and it's lovely.(November 2011)

    Comment:  Brooklyn Ballet Name of specific class (if applicable) - Pre-Beginner Ballet Location - Schermerhorn (Downtown)How old is your child? (or the age when he/she attended this program)? Age: - 4What did you/your child like about this program or class? This is a "real ballet" workshop, a week during the summer. Not that it makes much difference with 4 year olds, but since my daughter had asked for a ballet class, I felt compelled to find one that conveyed both the discipline and the art of ballet, and that did not market itself as "dance motion" or "creative movement." The teacher seemed to be a real ballerina and conveyed the exact kind of serious joy that one might expect, but the class was well-tailored to 4-year olds. It was just the right amount of ballet for a little girl who knows "Angelina Ballerina" and not much else.What would you change about the program? This studio is funded by the City and other donors, and is just getting off the ground. As such, the space isn't fully built out and feels a little improvised. For the younger set, it would be nice to have a longer workshop (two days a week for 3 weeks?), so that the lessons have a chance to be absorbed. However, it was a good introduction to ballet.Will you send your child back to this program or class again? (Or would you if you could?) YesWould you recommend this program to other parents for their child in the future? Highly recommend
