The Ballet Center and Artistic Director Debra Punzi has provided dance education on Long Island for over 35 years. Ballet is
our main course of study however we have expert teachers in Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop , Musical Theater, Acting and Tap
for all ages, young and adult alike.
The Ballet Center is competition-free; that is not to say our students are
not competitive, just that we do not promote sports-like competitions that are more lucrative than educational. Rather our
dance education is centered around stage performance.
Professional quality dance productions with Ballet
Long Island provide students with theater experience and the opportunity to refine their dance technique. In the
process they develop technical and social skills needed for collective participation towards a common goal. We feel these
skills are more valuable to the community and to the individual. And besides, even though preparing for a major full-length
ballet performance is hard work, our students find out that it is a lot of fun - fun that they share with other dancers. Many
of our students have gone on to careers in ballet companies, modern companies, film, TV, broadway shows, dance teacher, directors
and for other they develop a life long love of dance and theater.
Our focus at The ballet Center is to teach dance technically
correct, with efficiency and injury prevention in mind. Applying what is appropriate physically for young bodies, we
work to keep students healthy throughout their dancing life and beyond.
