Overall

A poor ballet school. Teacher/Student ratio is very high. I've seen one teacher having 20 students at the same time. Angela only goes after money. She charges a flat tuition on a monthly basis, instead of on a per-class basis. This is not fair, because sometimes there are only 3 Saturdays per month. She also uses class time doing non-ballet related activities, such as measuring body sizes, exchanging goody bags, taking X'mas pictures, etc. This is not fair for parents who pay tuitions for practicing ballet, not for exchanging goody bags. She charges unreasonable dollars for recital fees (e.g. $80 for 2 tickets and a DVD), and collects the payment for recitals 6 months ahead of time without explaining why ordering recital dresses could take 6 months. To me, it is just her way of ensuring that her students will stay in her school for at least the next 6 months. To me, she just cares about money. Her bedside manner is terrible and unfriendly. Definitely think twice before you sign up with Angela Van school of ballet.

Overall
excellent classical ballet foundation

Angela Van School of Ballet provides excellent training for all levels for classical ballet. Both my daughters are in the school and are having fun while learning the proper ballet technique. They dance to classical ballet music as well as learn the classical ballet steps and terms. The children (both girls and boys) learn to be disciplined and develop good posture and confidence in performing on stage. There is an annual recital which in volves all the students in all age groups. This is an exciting time with good music, beautiful costumes and wonderful dances choreographed by Angela Van. I rate this school highly because I can see the children and my daughters are having a lot of fun while learning and making new friends. My family and I also enjoy watching their performances at the recitals. Highly recommended for beginners or intermediate dancers alike.
