Harkness Ballet Program
Since the closing of Harkness House in June 1985, the Harkness Foundation has provided generous and continued support for the 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Center to expand its curriculum to include a comprehensive ballet program with live piano accompaniment. Limited scholarship funds are available. New students are evaluated for level placement at our fall open house or in the first class of the semester. If you are a new student in the Harkness Ballet Program, please call the dance office at 212.415.5552 to discuss the appropriate class placement and schedule conflicts.
Graded-level placement class: Sun, Sep 8, 1-1:30 pm.
