“Thank you for the wonderful experience that we are having at your school … she loves her class and teacher and I like that your school isn't focused on body image, but rather on the fun of the dance itself.”
“MAB has given each of them a certain mental toughness and tenacity that will serve them well in their lives no matter what path they choose. I am so grateful to you both. The positive difference you are making in the lives of so many young people that walk through the doors of MAB is your legacy. It is about so much more than ballet.”
“I’m very glad to find in America a school that is so similar to Russian Ballet. Thank you for preserving the classical dance tradition.”
