a class providing a bridge to ballet training at PBT School

PBT’s Bridges class is a training program that nurtures creativity and love of movement, and gives students and families the opportunity to closely experience the ballet art form. Students who have participated in our community dance programs are invited to take a beginning ballet class at our strip district location. No prior experience is needed and there is no charge for the program. Students receive thorough training in movement fundamentals, studio etiquette and more. 

The Bridges curriculum is condensed and accelerated so that students who may have no previous ballet experience receive thorough training in movement fundamentals, studio etiquette and more. The class prepares students for PBT’s Community Youth Scholarship audition, a need-based program that provides cost-free training at PBT School. It also provides a foundation of experience and knowledge that prepares students for a variety of dance opportunities outside of PBT or in the future.
