Harkness House For Ballet Arts, New York City, NY

Harkness House for Ballet Arts, located at 4 East 75th Street in Manhattan, was the rehearsal and training center for the Harkness Ballet, and housed the Harkness Ballet School. Built in 1896 as the home of Thomas J. Watson, founder of International Business Machines (IBM), the mansion was acquired by the Harkness Ballet Foundation, Inc. in 1965. The building was renovated to meet the needs of young artists, with five studios, ample dressing rooms, a library with a music listening room and audiovisual facilities, a canteen, and offices for a resident doctor and masseur. Its faculty included legendary master teachers such as David Howard, Maria Vegh, Patricia Wilde, Joanna Kneeland and Nancy Bielski. The curriculum, based in classical ballet, also included modern dance, jazz, and Spanish dance. Numerous dancers coming to New York City from across the U.S. and abroad attended classes at Harkness House as their first experience of the New York City dance world, and many report that studying there had a significant impact on their career.
