Our Educational Philosophy 

Providing each student with the best technical and artistic training possible is at the heart of vision. Our job as arts educators goes well beyond developing technique as we support the holistic development of the whole student. We strive to create and maintain a nurturing environment for all our students. We have high expectations for our students to learn, to grow and to achieve so they can reach their full potential all while learning to love and appreciate not only themselves but dance as an art form. Our faculty works hard to foster our student’s individual development, to correct and guide along the way and to thoughtfully communicate progress in a positive and supportive manner. Each student will grow and develop at his/her own rate, in his/her own time and we truly celebrate each individual’s unique journey through our school. With the goal to provide excellence and access to the art form of classical ballet and dance, BACT strives to: 

 

  • Deliver comprehensive ballet training to a broad-based student body with various aspirations, skill levels and ages through instruction in the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum.
