"This year has changed Ava.... as a dancer and as a person. She knows more about herself, what she wants, what she needs to do to get there, how to trust in the process and, most importantly, how to trust her gifted teacher. Mr. Adam, Miss Christina, and all of the staff and mentors at NMYB. Thank you for everything this year. We look forward to everything that is yet to come. NMYB is a treasure which we have been so fortunate to find!"
"NMYB is truly not your run of the mill ballet studio. We have BOYS in our studio, not just one or two but at least 16 with an incredible male dance program. It is a studio where everyone matters, from the children who are here to just enjoy and have fun, all the way to those on a pre-professional track. NMYB believes in teaching the whole child and has a strong emphasis on individuality, social justice, and the pure love of the art of ballet. If you want your child to learn the technique of ballet, the joy of ballet, the hard work of ballet in a loving and nurturing environment that puts out professional quality productions then Norwalk Metropolitan Youth Ballet is the place for you and your child! Oh, and did I say we have BOYS!"
"NMYB is an amazing studio led by tremendous people who are masters in their professions and truly great people. Anyone who has seen their recitals can see the quality of their work and even better, the maturation of the dancers within the studio. They continuously strive for excellence and if your son or daughter is interested in ballet - that is exactly what you want in a studio. I place a full A+ recommendation down here - give them a call and try a class - it won't be the last."
"Thank you so much to Mr. Adam and Ms. Christina, for making this an amazing year for Henry, and for being the place he wished existed in years past. You are much more than a dance school - you are a family, and a place for everyone to be comfortable expressing themselves. You are rigorous, but you never forget that having FUN is also important!"
MASTER TEACHING ARTIST TESTIMONIALS
“It was such an honor to have had the opportunity to work with the students of NYMB. Their talent, work ethic, dedication and commitment to their training and education was evident of the work that Mr. Adam has put in developing a strong dance program in a nurturing and supportive environment. All the students have a strong foundation, are highly motivated and continuously strive to further their dance training and education. Furthermore, Mr. Adam has created a program that fosters well rounded dancers, inspires creativity, promotes self-respect and confidence and is considerate and respectful of each students needs and abilities. I am looking forward to future collaborations and I cannot wait to hear all of the students’ accomplishments and achievements.”

“I have had the privilege of working with the young dancers at NMYB, while teaching a Jazz dance workshop. These dancers were not only skilled in their technique and artistry, but they were open and engaged and excited to try new things. It was a pleasure working with them and seeing the safe, yet challenging environment that Adam Holms has fostered for these lovely young dancers to grow, learn, create and have FUN! I look forward to working with NMYB again, and cannot wait to see the future progress of these talented students.”
