Since 1991, CBT has been training young artists and instilling a strong work ethics, passion, motivation and discipline in them. Some of our dancers have gone on to pursue professional dance careers and university dance programs. We are proud of them and also of all our alumni who are bringing what they have learned here at CBT with them onto their chosen career paths.

(Alumni: Let us know how you are doing and stay connected by sending us a note, liking and sharing on our facebook page. We would LOVE to hear from you!)
