Children & Teens Dance Programs


Inspiring Children by Sharing the Joy that comes from Dancing

Under the guidance of Artistic Director Dr. Chiara Ajkun and carried out by experienced Senior Artists of the Ajkun Ballet professional company, our programs offer dance performance opportunities in New York City, Westchester County, and New York's Capital Region.

Rooted in collaboration between Artists and Communities, and based upon Federal and NYS Standards, Ajkun Ballet Theatre creates positive and nurturing experiences to further children's creative and musical skills, self-esteem and confidence, while naturally advancing knowledge of Performance Technique and Etiquette.

We welcome the possibility to discuss the program that best suits your Child with you. To learn more about all our dance programs, please visit Dance Student Programs

What Participants and their Parents are saying...

The dancers in the Company are amazing, they inspire me and help me do what I love and get better at it. Ajkun Ballet Theatre has changed my perspective on dance and I have learned so much from watching how they work

Eden, in 5th grade, from New Rochelle (NY)

It is so gratifying to find a program that can meet and exceed all of my expectations regarding the needs of a young male dancer in training. Dance development for boys requires a unique focus and approach and you have provided an unparalleled experience that has met and pushed him to the next level of technique and performance.

Parent of Andrew, in 6th grade, from Queens (NY)

For the past five years I have loved dancing in Ajkun Ballet Theatre's Young Dancers Performance Program. It gives me a chance to shine on stage!

Davi, in 5th grade, from New Rochelle (NY)

I like that kids get to share the stage with the Ajkun Ballet Theatre Dancers. It makes kids stars and is so much fun!

Mira, in 3rd grade, from New Rochelle (NY)

I cannot even begin to explain the positive impact this experience had on all three of my girls, but particularly my 4 year old, Hope. She has been doing ballet nonstop since the last performance.
We cannot thank you enough for this program!!

Parents of Grace, in 3rd grade, Stella, in 1st grade, and Hope in Pre-K, from New Rochelle (NY)
