Youth Division

The Youth Division is available for students ages 12 – 21. Youth Division members take technique, pointe, pas de deux, modern, and variations classes in addition to master classes and workshops with nationally recognized faculty. Youth Division students also have the opportunity to audition for BBT’s Youth Company, a pre-professional ballet company. Youth Company members rehearse with and perform alongside professional dancers in BBT’s The Nutcracker and the annual Spring Showcase.
