About the Frank Ohman School of Ballet
When George Balanchine, the man who brought modern ballet to America, suggested one of his students open a ballet school on Long Island, the result was the Frank Ohman School of Ballet in Commack. Mr. Ohman, a former soloist at New York City Ballet, trained four generations of dancers and produced Long Island’s largest “Nutcracker” holiday tradition. That legacy now continues with Mr. Ask la Cour leading the school and the New York Dance Theatre company into a new era.
