Ballet des Amériques is an unparalleled professional conservatory training program! How fortunate we are to have a school of this caliber right here in Westchester, NY!! Carole Alexis is simply a master teacher and choreographer. Her expertise and care combined with her passion for teaching and skillful technical knowledge of dance pedagogy make for an unbeatable combination. We switched our then 11-year-old daughter to the BdA Conservatory training school last fall (2018) after she completed their four-week summer intensive in August 2018. Her progress after only 4 weeks was significantly measurable. For her and for us, the choice to make the move to Ballet des Amériques was a no-brainer. Having just finished her first year with the Academy in June 2019, we have only more wonderful things to say. She is truly a different dancer, more passionate about her training than ever and progressing by leaps and bounds (literally!) We were concerned at first about making the daily drive (she trains 6 days a week) from Nyack across the bridge all the way to Portchester, but it has proved manageable for us and well worth it! We would drive twice the distance for the quality of training she is receiving. It is simply the BEST!!!

My family and I are thrilled to have found Ballet des Ameriques. The school is a conservatory with a professional dance company. The teachers are outstanding – from Madame Alexis, to the company teachers, to the guest teachers. The curriculum designed by Carole Alexis is extremely well tailored for a student’s age and level. Our daughters started the ballet program later, beginning with the Summer Intensive when they were in 5th grade. They loved the Summer Intensive and auditioned to be part of the Conservatory. The younger students are amazing: to see their recitals is a joy. For parents of boys and girls who love to dance, I recommend you have them try Ballet des Ameriques.

Ballet des Amériques (BdA) is a dance institution with high professional standards. I had a chance to enjoy the company's work at BdA's annual fund raiser and it was impressive. While this organization was only founded in 2011, it is rapidly making a name for itself with its exquisite training and performances.
Moreover, some of BdA's company dancers were exclusively trained at the academy of BdA. It is obvious that the school offers quality ballet instruction that guides the student through the challenges and mysteries of ballet to its mastery.
In addition to its academy training, Ballet des Amériques is now opening its doors to all lovers of dance with a new General Program offering ballet as well as other forms of dance like jazz dance and Afro-Caribean dance. Classes will be taught by the same teachers.
In short, the work at BdA is making a significant contribution to the art of dance in the Tri-state area. Bravo!
