"In a day of fast food, smartphones and instant
gratification, wanting everything now and learning little patience, Ballet puts it all to a halt. Teaching each student that anything worth having takes time, work and patience. Making the sense of accomplishment even greater. Realizing that not
everyone has the patience to achieve what a dancer achieves. Only
through dedication and stick–to–itiveness does one realize how
wonderful this art form is and what a healthy life lesson it has to
offer. That is what makes ballet so special"

"When you’re screwing up and nobody says anything to you anymore that means they’ve given up on you…you may not want to hear it but your critics are often the ones telling you they still love you and care about you and want to make you better." - Randy Pausch. I watched an interview of "The Last Lecture" and Randy Pausch said something that stuck with me and made me think of Ms. Rebecca. There are so many dance teachers who will falsely encourage and make everyone think they are a star. If that's the kind of teacher you want Balbach School of Dance is not for you. However, if you want someone who will work endlessley to make you the best you can be, Rebecca is the right choice. Being corrected is part of life, I have never taken time to appreciate those who critique me. Each year I can personally see my own improvements. Balbach School of Dance has increased my confidence, worth ethic and has helped shaped me into who I am today. I am forever grateful for every one of Ms. Rebecca's corrections. I would recommend Balbach School of Dance to anyone who wants their kids to grow up being strong, confident and motivated. "
