Ballet & Body’s Director, Roberta Senn, has owned and operated the Great Neck School of Dance for 33 yrs. In that time, the school has become known for mounting full-length classical ballets rather than ordinary recitals.
These famous story ballets with costumes, scenery and props are danced by children from the school alongside professional dancers from the resident ballet company, American Ballet Russe.
Children receive a richer theatrical performing experience, understanding how to create a role that contributes to a larger, communal artistic effort.
Roberta intends to build on this tradition here at Ballet & Body.
