In NY State, the NYSSSA program is run by Bojan and Stephanie Spassoff and most of the teachers are former Balanchine or current NYCB members
John Pierre and Patricia McBride also run Chataqua Ballet in the summer in NY
I also believe the Pittursburg Ballet and Pennsylvania Ballet are run but former Balanchine dancers although I can't remember the names off hand

bellepoele, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre is directed by Terry Orr, who danced with ABT. I believe Roy Kaiser (Pennsylvania Ballet) is from NYCB -- but I'll wait to stand corrected
So DD will have a lot of places from which to choose!
