“Although the Florida Ballet’s Training Program is small, the syllabus is comparable to the larger major national and international ballet schools. The hours and quality of the training provided the students at Florida Ballet prepare them to compete with students worldwide vying for professional ballet companies and first class college dance programs. I have been impressed with the Florida Ballet students’ solid understanding of classical ballet technique.” - Dierdre Miles Burger, former principal, Boston Ballet School; presently, Director Orlando Ballet School
