To promote gender diversity in a historically female-dominated art form, BBT provides a Boys’ Fellowship program for young men ages 7-21 to receive financial support, specialized classes and mentorship.
Dancers enrolled in the Youth Division are eligible to be Fellowship Students.
To provide as much community to Fellowship students as possible, fellowship dancers are required to participate in The Nutcracker and Spring Showcase performances. To further support fellowship families, BBT provides tuition support in the following tiers:
– Levels 1-3 Tier 1: 50% tuition coverage
– Levels 4-8 Tier 2: 75% tuition coverage
– Youth Co. Tier 3: 100% tuition coverage
Current BBT families are encouraged to fill out and bring the 2017–2018 Boys’ Fellowship Application to the mandatory meeting on September 19, 6:45pm–7:45pm at 1370 Tenth Street, Berkeley. New families to BBT please contact the BBT Office at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
