Ages 8-11

New Dancer Form

Free Placement Class

Our Student Division classes focus on technique, repertoire and varied dance disciplines. 

Beginning with the Preparatory level, dancers develop flexibility, strength, alignment and turnout. Following Preparatory, dancers progress their training and artistry in the Student Division culminating in Level 5. After Level 5, dancers may be evaluated for placement in our career-track Pre-Professional Division for PBT School’s most advanced training. 

We place students in the Student Division based on the class that will best suit their continued development as a dancer. Dancers who wish to join this division must take a placement class for our faculty to assess the best option for them.

Please fill out our New Dancer Form to begin the process of having your child placed in the Student Division. 

Students participating in the year-round programming for the Student Divison will have several opportunities to perform during the year.
