About Summer in Buffalo

A city rich in history, tradition and culture, Buffalo, New York has all of the best a big city has to offer yet without many of the hassles. World-class architecture, theater, concerts, art galleries, museums, professional and recreational sports, shopping and other attractions are conveniently located in the greater metropolitan area. Summers are sunny and warm but not oppressively hot - helped by the gentle breezes off Lake Erie. 

And if that isn't enough, you're just a bridge away from Canada, the majesty and attractions of Niagara Falls, and a short drive to the bustling metropolis of Toronto.

Small Class Sizes Allow for Personalized Attention

"Dear Sergio, Heidi and the teachers of the summer program, 

I wanted to thank you for your kindness and attention to my daughter Sarah. Sarah felt that her technique improved a lot from the personal attention that she received from her teachers. 

As a parent I was so impressed with the hospitality of the girls from Buffalo and their families. The chaperone kept her safe and showed her a good time, even a special cake on her birthday. 

I hope that the girls from Japan enjoyed their experience. Sarah came home with a small vocabulary in Japanese and a lot of understanding of another culture- something unexpectedly wonderful.

I continue to learn myself from the experiences of my creative children, and this summer was wonderful. Thank you."

~Nanette, Syracuse, NY (parent testimonial)
