Eglevsky Ballet was founded by legendary New York City Ballet principal dancer Andre Eglevsky, one of the greatest dancers of his generation. For over 50 years, Eglevsky Ballet has been bringing balletic artistry of the highest caliber to Long Island and has long been recognized as a prominent, professional company. Now under the artistic direction of Laszlo Berdo, Eglevsky Ballet continues its annual tradition of The Nutcracker, the largest production on Long Island. In addition, the company boasts a full-time professional training program located in Bethpage. Students from Nassau, Suffolk, and Queens travel to the state-of-the-art facility where they may enroll in a pre-professional training program or participate in open classes. Eglevsky Ballet provides professional caliber training for students of all ages and abilities.
Eglevsky Ballet’s mission is to enrich students and community through the disciplines of classical ballet.
