Workshops offer a nurturing, creative environment for dancers and performers. American Theater Dance Workshop features large, modern, fully mirrored studios with sprung floors. Classes during the school year are available for children ages 3 and older through adults, from beginner to professional levels. Most of them feature live musical accompaniment.

Ballet luminaries such as Katherine Healy and Leslie Browne are part of the illustrious staff. New owners of the school, Michelle and Jerome Vivona, are excited to bring their ballet and Broadway career experiences to the next generation of Long Island dancers.
