The Children’s Division at Berkeley Ballet Theater brings the joy of dance, with its physical, mental, and aesthetic benefits to children age 7 – 18. Whatever a student’s goal, we believe it is best achieved in a disciplined, positive, and loving environment. All students in the Children’s Division have the opportunity to perform in The Nutcracker and the Spring Showcase.
This is a progressive, classical ballet program and students are required to attend for at least a semester to receive the full benefit of the training. The school session starts in September with an additional January mid-session start date. Classes are held two to five times weekly depending on level.
Please contact the BBT office if you have questions regarding a dancer’s placement. New families will be contacted by the Associate Artistic Director for a brief intake conversation after completing registration.
