Kids Dance

Every year, the students of Ballet Tech show off their performances skills— as well as other learned abilities through the discipline of dance—  at an annual performance entitled Kids Dance at NYC’s Joyce Theatre. Because of the costs and commitments of ballet, the school attracts many from underserved communities to explore the world of ballet that they normally would not have access to with its free tuition. Says founder Eliot Feld,  “We want the ones who might never have known that they have a passion or talent. That’s why we go to them.”

A Life of Dance

Meet the founder of Ballet Tech, Eliot Feld, who has made a lifelong commitment to the art of dance. Performing since 11, he progressed to choreography at the American Ballet Theatre, and soon moved to create his own company, the American Ballet Company. While the company disbanded soon after, Feld found success in Ballet Tech, which was officially established in 1978, which has served 20,000 NYC students. Feld also created a showcase for his dancers’ artistry with the Joyce Theater in Chelsea. Read more about how this visionary has given back to the performing arts in New York City.
