About LICSB: Founded in 2006 and is recognized today as one of the foremost dance programs in New York. We focus on developing strong technique and physical conditioning in our students while fostering an appreciation for the performing arts. Our curriculum is based on the classical ballet training of Cecchetti with aspects of Vagonova for strength and Balanchine for speed.
