Currently located in Commack, the school serves as a training ground for promising young dancers and offers aspiring students the opportunity to learn classical ballet in the tradition of George Balanchine. The Frank Ohman School of Ballet will guide your child from first steps to advanced technique, while instilling a true appreciation and love for this timeless art form. The school is a non-competition, non-recital school, focusing on proper classical ballet technique.
Our students have been accepted into some of the most prestigious summer training programs in the country including American Ballet Theater, San Francisco Ballet, Boston Ballet, Chautauqua, Miami City Ballet, Orlando Ballet, New York State Summer School of the Arts, The Rock School, Walnut Hill School, Joffrey Ballet and Ballet Academy East. Alumni have gone on to dance professionally with companies including New York City Ballet, Pittsburg Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, National Ballet of Canada, Ballet Austin, Ballet Hispanico and MOMIX. Others have gone on to ballet related positions such as director of marketing for Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and some have opened their own ballet schools. Whatever our students’ futures hold in store for them, they leave here with an understanding of discipline, dedication and self-awareness which helps them in any endeavors. A division of the New York Dance Theatre, Inc., the Ohman School has become an integral part of the company, and is one of the very few not-for-profit ballet schools in the region. It offers three studios with state-of-the art flooring to Balanchine specifications and a highly qualified teaching staff headed up by artistic director Frank Ohman.
