Youth Ballet

Click here to register online for  select Youth Ballet Classes. (Online registration opens July 2)

The Youth Ballet Program is perfect for young dancers requiring flexibility in their schedule to take as few as one class per week, who are returning to ballet after a break in their training, or who are learning ballet for the first time. Students have the option to register by semester or full year and multiple full-year class discounts are available. Dancers will learn the same curriculum as MBT’s Academic Ballet Program, but will progress at a slower pace to ensure safety and to gain full knowledge of proper execution of movement. Students in the Youth Ballet Program can audition into the Academic Ballet Program, pending class availability, and will be placed accordingly.
