Student Testimonials

South Jersey Ballet has truly been like my second home for the past twelve years. While my parents and I were initially drawn to the school because of the high-quality ballet training, my years as a student have taught me so much more than just good technique. For instance, due to the countless performing opportunities that South Jersey Ballet offers, I have always been extremely comfortable dancing on stage and sharing my passion with the audience. This confidence can undoubtedly be linked to the support and encouragement I have received from my wonderful teachers, who have pushed me to reach my fullest potential as a dancer. I truly feel individually connected to each of them as a result of their warm and caring personalities. Over the years, SJBS has also introduced me to a variety of other dance styles, including jazz and modern, both of which I greatly enjoy. Because of my newfound love for modern in particular, I have decided to major in dance at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, where I will be taking daily classes in both ballet and modern dance. In addition, after years of watching, assisting, and being inspired by my teachers at SJBS, I also plan to earn a master’s degree in Dance Education, in order to continue sharing my passion for dance with others for years to come.

“I am so glad I found a school like South Jersey Ballet. Ever since
I was 3 years old, I’ve dreamed of being a prima ballerina. I know with
South Jersey Ballet School, I can work to make that dream possible.
Every class is hard work; yet fun and challenging. I feel like I am
always learning something new. I am proud to say that I’m always
being taught correct technique and I love knowing classes are taught in
a professional way. Being at South Jersey Ballet I feel I can express
myself not through words, but Dance.”  – Amanda, age 13

Parent Testimonials

“Our daughter, Jen, attended South Jersey Ballet School and performed with South Jersey Ballet Theatre from age 7 until age 18 (and hopefully beyond!). Throughout these years, her greatest source of joy and fulfillment has been the time she has spent at the dance studio and theater with her teachers and friends. We are extremely grateful to everyone associated with South Jersey Ballet for everything that you’ve given Jen and for everything you mean to her. The excellent dance instruction, combined with a great deal of support, encouragement, guidance, friendship, and laughter have helped her to become a beautiful, dedicated dancer and an exceptional young woman.”
