Answer by Artistic Lamb
Ballet? Love it !
But dance is an expensive hobby to take up – ballet especially. And more so for kids and advanced teens. Recreational classes (the kind that I think you would be going for) will very roughly cost somewhere between $ 400 – $ 700, often more, for one dance season (early or mid September to mid or late June, depending on studio). If you want a professional school, well, that’s a whole different story.
I don’t live in NYC, but I can tell you some schools with the help from Google!
There’s of course, the New York City Ballet School! One of THE best you can get at New York. But classes are pro and expensive, and they most likely won’t let you in after the audition unless you have the ballet body, which only 2% have (long arms, long toes, long neck, small round head, hyper extended legs, flat chest, 90 degree at least turnout from hip rotators, small torso, and flexibile, high-arched, banana “C” shaped feet). Here’s their website: http://www.sab.org/school/nycballet.php
The Joffrey Ballet School, which you have to audition too. They have not a single word about fees and costs on their website, which is www.joffreyballetschool.com
The Broadway Dance Center. With 1 class/week it is $ 812. http://www.broadwaydancecenter.com/index.shtml
I think you should just Google your area with “ballet classes” beside it. But this website has a WHOLE list of ballet schools complete with their websites in New York City.
Good luck and happy dancing!
