Pre-Ballet Division

Pre-Ballet classes introduce children age 4 through 7 to the joys of dance. Children gain a sense of accomplishment while exploring creative expression through imagery, music and movement. Our syllabus introduces students to the fun and discipline of dance through exercises appropriate to their physical and emotional capabilities. This is a school-year program which begins in September and ends in June. Students attend class once a week and have the opportunity to perform in the Pre-Ballet Spring Showcase.

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.
