Ohman School of Ballet – 631.462.6266

Ohman School of Ballet serves as training ground for promising young dancers and offers students the opportunity to learn classical ballet as passed down through Frank Ohman, former Soloist with New York City Ballet. We are committed to preparing students for a life both onstage and off through pre-professional programming, master classes and workshops, multiple performance opportunities, and a wide array of injury prevention and mental health classes interwoven in our world class curriculum.

Our ballet school opens its doors to all students who wish to learn proper ballet technique regardless of their future aspirations.

Located in Commack, NY, our school serves Nassau & Suffolk Counties and the greater Long Island / New York area.
