  • "We are so lucky to have such a professional studio in Herricks. The calibre of teachers and staff continues to be impressive and what other studio provides live piano for their ballet class? I have been an adult dancer for many years now and ATDW has brought me a long way. With the new, fresh energy the Vivona’s have brought, I look forward to many more years."

  • "I spent majority of my years training in dance at ATDW. I switched to the studio when I was in 6th grade, and stayed there until I graduated High School. It was a perfect match for me, because I received the specific Theater Dance training I wanted, since I was heavily involved in musicals, and the Ballet training I needed to be a seamless dancer in multiple genres. I walked into college prepared and eager, and as a freshman was able to start in Int/Adv classes. I valued each of my classes at ATDW; Ballet, Tap, Theater Dance, Musical Theater, Pointe, Repertory Company, and Modern helped prepare me to be the performer I am today, and the teacher I am developing into! This school will always hold a special place in my heart!"

  • "When we moved to Long Island from New York City, we knew we would not find a dance school for our children equal in quality to programs in Manhattan. American Theater Dance Workshop, owned by the extraordinarily talented and committed Michelle and Jerome Vivona, has proven us wrong.Our 18 year old has studied at ATDW for 10 years, attending classes up to 10 hours per week. In ballet, pointe, theater dance, musical theater, tap, lyrical, and as a member of the Theater Dance Repertory Company, she has been nurtured, inspired, encouraged, pushed, motivated, and trained at the highest level by devoted teachers including the Artistic Director of the NOMAD contemporary ballet company, past and current Broadway performers and dance captains, and soloists from The New York City Ballet. Our 11 year old is quickly following in her sister's footsteps, developing her own passion for dance. The Vivonas, with their high expectations and spectacular experience and connections, stop at nothing to bring the best to their students. We are eternally grateful to this school for not only providing the best training for our daughters technically and artistically, but for giving them enjoyment, pride and self-confidence. The Vivonas take a personal interest in each student’s growth. The students are supportive of each other and develop deep friendships.Our daughter, who is committed to st"

  • "As a theater supervisor, I have had the opportunity to work with a considerable number of dance schools. As far as the work is concerned none can compare with ATDWS. Their teachers are the consummate professionals: demanding but kind, enthusiastic, and generous with their talents. From a technical perspective, ATDW’s end of the year performance is more of a complete production than simply a recital. They provide the dancers with an unbelievably professional experience.
    When it came time to enroll my own daughter in dance classes, there was really no decision to be made. Throughout her time at ATDW'S, she has not only learned technique but has grown in self-discipline and confidence. She has absolutely loved her teachers and her time there."
