Founded in 2002, Brooklyn Ballet's mission is to create ballets flush with artistic excellence and innovation that delight audience members. With this goal in mind, the not-for-profit professional dance company works with writers, visual artists, and even hackers to design pieces that are reflective of Brooklyn's diverse communities. Before dancers hit the stage, they can get their reps in at the downtown state-of-the-art studio, which features a column-free dance space, wood-sprung floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows. And for those who just want to hone their skills without brining them on stage, the instructors lead recreational classes for adults and kids.
For more than 25 years, Drama Kids International has nurtured thousands of thespian students and kids simply searching for an engaging activity, instilling children with the ability to speak clearly and confidently. Classes focus on sharpening articulated speech and encouraging creative expression. Children are placed in classes according to their age group: the Lower Primary (ages 5–8) teaches kids how to deliver lines and hone social skills, the Upper Primary (ages 9–11) delves into improvisation and dramatic movement, and the DKI Acting Academy (ages 12–17) preps scene-stealers on how to audition for their dream role. Each class includes a variety of activities for kids to unleash their imagination, which develops their dramatic abilities in a fun, easy-going setting. Drama Kids instructors foster an open, comfortable acting environment. Call ahead to schedule the first class and start your child down the path of becoming one of the more notable Baldwin brothers.
The entire teaching staff at Dance Express holds dance degrees from accredited universities, enabling the team to teach classes for kids and adults in a diverse array of styles. Lessons range from ballet and tap dance to more contemporary styles such as hip-hop and break dancing. In addition to the studio's group and private lessons, kids' birthday parties combine jewelry-making, face-painting, and magic tricks with meals of pizza or bagels.
We are a Ballroom and Latin Dance Studio and are proud to say that we have been in business since 1991. From private lessons to our wide variety of group dance and fitness classes we have something to offer for everyone!
At offices in Great Neck and Floral Park, Dr. Lauren Schwartz leads a podiatric team that’s been keeping feet and ankles healthy for about 20 years.The office addresses general podiatry care for bunions, fractures, heel pain, neuromas, orthotics and diabetic foot care; patients can also opt for a bit of pampering: specially designed sterile pedicures keep toes relaxed and looking their best, and sterile manicures do the same for fingers. The foot facial gets skin ready for open-toed shoes and glass slippers.
