MBT hosts an annual season-end Gala & Dance Concert to celebrate our students’ and faculty members’accomplishments, to raise funds, to acknowledge our volunteers, donors and corporate sponsors, and most importantly to enjoy an evening of demonstrations and performances from all of our student class levels.  All students are given the opportunity to take the stage.  The professional Metropolitan Ballet Ensemble premiered at the first Gala & Dance Concert in May 2013.
