We've gone to Keshet in the past, and I really love their inclusive philosophy. They offer financial assistance, too. Check them out at http://www.keshetdance.org/
Here's some info:
Studio classes are available for both adults and youth ages 2 and above in Modern, Ballet, Jazz/Hip Hop, Performance Workshop, Creative Movement, and Stretch and Strength (Pilates-based). Unlimited and noncompetitive scholarships are offered to ensure access to all youth. Adults in need of financial assistance can participate in the Work/Study Program where volunteer time is traded for class time.

Some people get an education without going to college; the rest get it after they get out. –Mark Twain
BRT Ballet Repertory Theatre is really great. We have been attending for a couple of years now. They are none profit and have extremely affordable prices. The kids really learn a lot too. For three children I pay less than 100 a month.
I looked at the website for Fishbacks... where does one get cobalt blue leotards? Do they sell them there? Also it says that you have to register in May each year and they have waiting lists and such. Does that mean it would be too late for us to go there since it's June? I don't want to register somewhere for a full year if it doesn't end up working out for us, or spend too much money on a special uniform if she decides ballet's not for her after two weeks. At the same time if they're that much in demand there must be a reason, and I do approve of strict perimeters... thoughts?
They sell the leotard, tights and shoes at the studio. They also give you your daughters initials to sew onto the right shoulder of the leotard to help teach them left and right. Its so cute! Anyway, I thought the cost for the whole outfit was not outrageous - I think they try to keep it affordable. The studio is open for the month of June, you could try calling in the evening during the week when I know they are having classes. They have a front desk with someone always working. I think in July they close until school starts again - so if you're interested in details you should call next week.
