Greenwich Ballet Academy!!!!! Where are you?????? Fantastic pre-professional school for the serious dancer. Teachers are all former Principal dancers from Russia and the Ukraine and are amazing. We are very lucky to have this school in the area as it saves sending our children to NYC to get the necessary training for a career in classical ballet. Former students from GBA have joined companies and achieved scholarships in Europe!

We love Allegra - a wonderful, highly professional place to train in dance and have fun. Exceptional teachers who truly care about their students. The best is that Allegra gives people of all ages the opportunity to dance. I danced at Allegra while in high school and now in my 40s I am happy that Allegra is still around and I can take adult classes. Thank you Allegra for your many years of dedication to Greenwich - and so conveniently located!!

The Allegra dancers are truly a family. I don't know what I would do without the friendships made at Allegra-plus, the dancing ain't bad either! The positive attitude of every dancer and instructors facilitates a welcoming, comfortable environment.

Allegra offers so many different classes taught by wonderful instructors who truly inspire their dancers. The Nutcracker is also a new, fun experience for everyone who performs in it! It really bonds the students of Allegra. These friendships are the ones you have for life!!

My daughter loves it at Allegra! She's made great friends there and the teachers have inspired a love of dance in her that will last a lifetime.

Allegra Dance Studio is like a second home to me. It is a place where I have grown as a person and as a dancer. The teachers at Allegra help the students to become strong and powerful dancers, and if not for them, I would not have the strength and technique that I have today. The goal is not to be perfect but to be able to perform and share a message with the audience through dancing. The dancers at Allegra share a passion for dance and everyone has something unique to contribute to the studio. Allegra is not just a place full of energy, talent, and passion, but it is a place where I have made so many amazing friendships. Honestly, I do not know who I would be without Allegra Dance Studio.

We love Saint Saviour's School of Dance! Mr Scott is the most patient person I think I've ever met, the kids love him. He manages to make classes fun whilst maintaining a strong sense of authority and all the while teaching the ballet and tap basics to the 3 & 4 year old class that will give then a fantastic foundation in dance. The christmas recital is fun and festive, and the end of year recital is so incredibly well organised, the costumes are amazing, the rehearsals and show run like clockwork. Mr Scott and all the teachers behind the scenes put in a huge amount of time and effort to put the show together, and it really is one of the highlights of our year. Send your kids to Mr Scott, he's the best!

Allegra Dance Studio has prepared me both mentally and technically to dance in college and at a professional level. The staff is unparalleled with their incredible diversity in technique and willingness to help you both in the studio and out. Allegra is truly a family and the bonds that I made while dancing there (for 11+ years) are some of the most cherished relationships that I have. Allegra helps dancers grow and improve immensely in technique in various styles- while providing a supportive and loving structure. I will always think of Allegra as my second home and could not recommend it any higher.

Allegra is by far the best studio in Greenwich. With classes welcoming to any age or level, the teachers and students are so professional and are passionate about learning and performing. As an adult dancer, I feel confident and challenged in every single class. Have developed true friendships inside and outside of the studio.

"Dancing with the feet is one thing, but dancing with the heart is another" author unknown..... After 40 years, to Inspire a Love and Passion for Dance, Allegra has helped students to grow and share all the love of dance in their heart with the world around them. Thank You Allegra

Nothing can top Allegra! It is not just a great place to teach you how to dance, it also is a place to have fun, make friends, and try new things! If I didn't have Allegra, I don't know what I would do. The teachers treat you as if you are all a family, and it is almost like a second home! I love Allegra, and will always know that the instructors and students their re part of my life!
