Academy Classes

MBT’s Adaptive Ballet program encourages integration into mainstream classes for ambulatory dancers with special needs ranging from developmental, orthopedic, cognitive, and behavioral impairments. One-on-one assistance is encouraged to join class with the student if needed. Funding for a one-on-one class assistant may also be available through a generous MBT donor if your family needs assistance. Please inquire for details.

Please contact the studio for more information or to register.

Studio Field Trips

MBT also offers a special “field trip” dance class designed for children with special needs. The class is tailored to meet the abilities and needs of the class members and includes typical elements of a beginning ballet class but progresses at a slower pace. Movement, musicality and self-expression are emphasized. Please call for more details and to schedule a field trip to MBT.

Students from the Adaptive Ballet program have performed in MBT’s The Nutcracker.
