Studio Maestro is a ballet school in New York City founded in 1995 by Rose Caiola. It has become one of New York City's premier classical ballet academies. A portion of its students graduate into some of the finest ballet companies including American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, Washington Ballet, National Ballet of Croatia, Pennsylvania Ballet, National Ballet of Canada, San Francisco Ballet, Ballet de Espana and others.
The school program is taught in eight levels, each of which has a specific set of skills that the student must master in order to advance to the next level. The syllabus at each level progressively builds a solid foundation both technically and artistically. The school also has a four week summer program held in August of every year.
The school's new state-of-the-art facility at the Manhattan Movement and Arts Center at 248 West 60th Street, New York, New York, opened with a ribbon-cutting evening gala on June 26, 2008.
Faculty include, Deborah Wingert, and Marina Stavitskaya. Guest faculty for the 2008–2009 year are Jared Angle (New York City Ballet), Natalia Boesch (American Ballet Theatre), Sébastien Marcovici (New York City Ballet), Janie Taylor (New York City Ballet), Daniel Ulbricht (New York City Ballet), Roman Zhurbin (American Ballet Theatre), Karin Averty (Paris Opera Ballet), and Flavio Salazar (American Ballet Theatre). In addition to the enrolled students, dancers from the School of American Ballet and the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School are permitted to audit classes at Studio Maestro. The well-attended annual Spring Gala Performance for 2008 included excerpts of classics by George Balanchine, Marius Petipa, Martha Graham, Bryan Arias-Diaz, and Tom Baird.
