A ballerina must practice for hundreds of hours in order to perfect her movements, much as a geneticist must create hundreds of abominations before perfecting a clone of his childhood cat. Try, try again with this Groupon.

Ballet Long Island
The Ballet Center, Ballet Long Island, and The Theater Company all share one space and one mission: to provide opportunities for all people to experience the art of performance. Seasoned dance instructors lead 38 different types of dance classes in preparation for performances in the studio, with ballet and theater companies, and at the Islip Town Hall West recital. Classes train toes to pas de basque in beginners classes for youth through professional-level pointe classes, and contemporary styles such as modern and hip-hop infuse choreography with vivacious rhythms and full-body flutters. Small class sizes ensure students can progress quickly with individual instruction, and a floating dance floor set on high-density foam absorbs shocks and reduces the chances of injury from attempting a triple salchow sans ice skates. As a nonprofit, The Ballet Center directs its funds to make it possible for community members to learn dance through scholarships and low tuition fees.
