Their approach to life is shaped through the discipline of their lessons and the meaningful relationships they form with their instructors and peers.
Founded in 1967 by NYCB principal ballerina, Yvonne Mounsey, and co-founder, Royal Ballet First Soloist Rosemary Valaire, Westside School of Ballet distinguishes itself as a non-audition academy where all are welcome to study ballet and train to the most refined pre-professional level.
