About Us

Ballet is more than just a graceful art form; it's a gateway to promoting a child's healthy, harmonious physical development. With so many children today spending countless hours glued to screens and electronics, it's no surprise that conditions such as scoliosis, kyphosis, lordosis, and flat feet are becoming increasingly prevalent. The solution lies in enrolling children in ballet classes, where they can benefit from a symmetrical workout of all muscle groups, cardiovascular training, and a structured yet nurturing environment. Under the guidance of our experienced ballet teacher and choreographer, children will not only cultivate their physical strength and flexibility, but also their discipline and artistic sensibility.

Within the enchanting realm of the Lesko Ballet Academy on Staten Island, a profound understanding takes root—ballet is not solely reserved for those who yearn to make it their life's calling.

Thus, we bestow upon our students a solid foundation, embracing diverse techniques and styles that will empower them should they choose to embark upon a ballet career.
