The Harid Conservatory is a ballet professional-training school for high-school age students. It was established in 1987 and is located in Boca Raton, Florida. A four-year curriculum is offered that includes ballet and related dance courses. Academic coursework is provided on campus through Florida Virtual School. HARID is recognized as a high school by the State of Florida.[1][2]

The school's founder was Fred Lieberman (1923–2008), who named it for his parents Harry and Ida. Although Lieberman funded the program's annual operating costs, he remained an anonymous benefactor during his lifetime, known only as "the Donor" to HARID students, employees, and supporters. He also established an endowment fund to continue funding the school after his death.[3][4]
