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.
Students in Levels 7 & 8 may audition for BBT’s Youth Company, a pre-professional training program. Youth Company dancers have increased opportunities to perform and the extended rehearsals required to prepare, as well as special Master Classes taught by working professional dancers. For the annual Spring Showcase, Youth Company members often participate in the creation of new works by professional choreographers as well as by members of BBT’s faculty.
All members of the public are welcome to audition for the youth company, and will be placed within our Children’s Division as well.
