Ballet Tech (BT) is dedicated to developing new generations of dancers by introducing thousands of New York City public school children to the beauty and rigor of classical dance and providing those most promising with the professional training necessary to pursue their creative potential, tuition-free. In 1978, choreographer Eliot Feld began Ballet Tech to provide tuition-free dance training to develop new generations of dancers drawn from the NYC public school system. Ballet Tech subsequently entered into a public/private partnership with the NYC Department of Education (DOE) in 1996, making it possible for students to study dance as part of the regular school day. Ballet Tech serves 180 students annually in grades 4-12.
