Speck Fitness Ballet School is owned and run by former professional ballerina, Rachel Speck. Rachel received her ballet training from Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, one of the top 5 best ballet schools in the entire world, and Miami City Ballet, another top school, and professional company. After dancing professionally, and training at some of the best ballet schools in the world, Rachel is one of the top people in the area to acquire outstanding ballet training and technique.

Speck Fitness’ Ballet School offers ballet classes for children 2 ½ and up. We currently do two shows per year. One show is an onstage production, and the other one is an end of the year showcase. We also do a four-week ballet intensive summer camp every year, open to current students and new students from other schools. We offer private lessons for ages 3 and up. Rachel is very hands-on and teaches every single class and level from her 3-year olds to her most advanced students to ensure the quality of ballet training. She works with students from all of the dance schools in the area on improving their technique, pointe work, and even competition prep.

So many dancers and schools are just concerned about doing a million pirouettes but don’t care if it looks good. Rachel goes back to basics and works on turnout, feet, posture, arms, and all the details in a ballerina’s technique that make those pirouettes look flawless. Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet (CYPB), the school where Rachel received her training, is known for having absolutely perfect turnout and technique, which is why most of their dancers become professionals in all of the major ballet companies in the world, and why the school has been around for over 60 years. Rachel uses those same training methods that she learned over the 12 years she trained there with her students today. She follows the same class structure, combinations, and exercise breakdown to try to ensure the same caliber of training that CPYB provides. Her motto is, “If you can do it slow, then fast is easy.”

  • “5 years ago Elizabeth started with Rachel Speck, and it is the best 5 years she has ever had! We are so excited for another 5 years of learning with Rachel before Elizabeth goes to college. I want to borrow another mom's words about our amazing teacher which I super agree with - "Rachel Speck Your commitment and dedication to your students are unmatched!". Year #6 here we come!”
  • My daughter has danced classical ballet for 10 years. Two years ago we discovered Rachel Speck and it’s been an amazing couple of years. Without a doubt Rachel offers THE BEST ballet instruction in Broward county. Rachel is the real deal! Her ability to teach technique, improve technique and inspire young ladies is remarkable. She made my daughter fall in love again with ballet after experiences at a previous studio made her want to stop dancing.

    - Steve Reid, Ballet School
  • Although Rachel Speck is only a teacher of one, she can teach multiple students in both fitness and dance. After my first class of ballet, I noticed very much improvement. Very PROFESSIONAL!! AND, she keeps the studios very clean. The bars are sanitized after EVERY class. I also suggest taking a Tendu Toning class 🙂 Very satisfied!!

    - Stella Huang, Ballet School
  • “My daughter started ballet classes with Rachel 5 years ago and has loved every class!!  On ballet days she races to get ready and just can’t wait to get there!  Rachel’s professional knowledge and her style of teaching are a rare and wonderful combination.  Her genuine love and passion for ballet is infectious- while her classes are hard my daughter has so much fun and feels a sense of accomplishment with each new thing she learns.  Rachel is teaching these girls to be graceful, strong, and confident.  We are so grateful to Rachel for sharing her love of ballet with our daughter.”

    - Paula Michaelides, Ballet School
  • "My daughters have been attending ballet classes for years and the dedication, patience, kindness, and love from the teacher is amazing!  Fitness classes for adults and kids are pretty great too!  I love Speck Fitness and highly recommend it to all ages.”

    - Maria Take, Ballet School
  • “I’m so happy with the progress I have seen in my daughters in the last 2 years.  They have learned good techniques and skills from a professional ballerina.”

    - Paola Pestana, Ballet School
  • “My daughter has been doing ballet with Ms. Rachel for 4 years now.  She has learned so much from an incredible teacher. Ms. Rachel is dedicated towards her students to keep improving as ballerinas. My daughter is so strong because of this class. She loves ballet because of her teacher.  Thank you, Ms. Rachel!”

    - Lisa California, Ballet School
  • "Kind, knowledgable, dedicated, professional, and committed to excellence!  My daughter and I have worked with Speck Fitness now for 6 years and have always received superior service, guidance, and expertise in both fitness and ballet.”
