BBT’s New Home

This fall, Berkeley Ballet Theater is moving to  1370 Tenth Street in Berkeley’s Gilman District —a new state-of-the-art dance facility.

We will be transitioning all classes, including Youth Division and Adult Open Division programming, over the start of the 2017–2018 school year.

We are excited to seize this opportunity to upgrade our facilities to match the high quality of the training we provide our dancers. Throughout the last several years we have gathered input from hundreds of BBT community members—adult dancers, parents, faculty, and supporters—to understand your needs and spatial preferences. We are delighted that the 1370 Tenth Street location will provide:

  • A wifi-equipped waiting area for parents and dancers
  • Dancer changing rooms
  • State-of-the-art, clean, and spacious studios equipped with sprung base floors covered with the highest quality Harlequin Marley 
  • Free two-hour parking in residential areas a block away from the studio entrance (and metered parking—free on Sundays—in the immediate vicinity)
  • Nearby amenities in the transforming Gilman District including retail, groceries, refreshments, restaurants, apparel, and more!
