Happy 10th Anniversary !!!

Celebrate SLK Ballet School's 10th Anniversary with us !



SLK Ballet School New York City is unique. The school was founded by Sara Knight  in September 2010 as a  "A school for gifted dancers to prepare for a career as a professional dancer." A Manhattan based professional training for elite dancers, the school never exceeds 15 gifted students.


Now with an associated performance company - Chevalier Ballet - exchange programs have been established with English National Ballet School, Central School of Ballet and Masters of Ballet in London, England. 


SLK Ballet’s Director Sara Knight, graduate from both the Royal Ballet School and The Vaganova Ballet School, oversees every students’ training program individually and continues to guest teach around the world. 


A lot has happened since then and now. Watch our videos and explore our website and social media to learn more about us.

" I spent the last four years of my pre-professional training at SLK Ballet. I remember these as the most educational, rewarding, inspirational, and influential years of my training. Ms. Knight and the faculty at SLK are dedicated to providing their students the highest quality training to prepare them for professional careers. Ms.Knight has an extensive knowledge of the industry that she selflessly passes on to each of her students in a manner that is challenging yet exciting. She cares for her students both inside and outside of the studio and pushes them to be the best versions of themselves as dancers and people. The performance opportunities both domestically and internationally are unlike anything offered elsewhere. I truly believe SLK Ballet is the perfect program to prepare the young dancer both physically and mentally for a professional career; it certainly was for me! "
