Beginner Ballet (ages 10-15)
Continuing with Neglia's mission to make ballet accessible to everyone...we're proud to announce the start of Beginning Ballet for boys and girls ages 10 - 15. With extracurricular activities, instruments, sports becoming so specialized at a young age, often kids feel like they've "missed the window of opportunity" to try something new. Well, at Neglia, we want people to feel comfortable trying ballet AT ANY AGE. 

This 12-week program will give tween newbies the chance to experience an intro to ballet among their peer group in a supportive setting. After completing the course, we hope they enjoy ballet so much they'll continue training at Neglia.
CityDance - BPS 61 at the Conservatory
Neglia Ballet is excited for our continued partnership with the Buffalo Public Schools through CityDance. For the rest of the 2018 school year, 3rd grade students from BPS 61 come to our conservatory once per month during the school day to take ballet class. Not only are they getting a foundation in classical ballet, they're experiencing body awareness, coordination, balance, focus, team-work...the list of ballet benefits is endless!
Welcome Back Sergio
Sergio Neglia is back from Argentina where he was teaching and touring in February. Teaching over 200 students and 10 instructors in 4 cities and traveling over 14,000 miles in the name of ballet! Our students enjoyed our visiting guest teachers (Marie, Sherri, Fidel and Angela) who came to help out at the conservatory in February. Thank you for your time and talents!
