Our Mission

Since 1991, the three-fold mission of the Classical Ballet Theatre (CBT) is to provide education, performance and outreach opportunities in the performing arts to Northern Virginia and the surrounding communities. CBT provides the highest caliber of training and coaching opportunities to prepare young dancers for a career in the performing arts as well as to provide classes to dancers of all ages and levels in the community. The CBT children's program puts deliberate emphasis on pre professional achievement with each level crafted to provide the most comprehensive training and coaching in order to produce the high quality dancer that CBT is known for. The CBT Adult program receive training from the same faculty as the children's program, offering our adults some of the best classical, stretch and core conditioning in the area. CBT provides exceptional performance opportunities with world renowned choreographers, and master teachers, while offering high quality productions to the community at affordable prices. CBT's extensive community outreach includes free performing arts enrichment programs for local schools, organizations and underserved populations, as well as "tribute" performances that raise public awareness for worthy causes and honor members of our community.

Philosophy

The professional faculty of the Classical Ballet Theatre will ask the very best of each student. In return we will dedicate to each student the attention they deserve, stressing the values of hard work, discipline, artistic growth, and commitment to excellence. We will encourage each dancer to reach the highest level of their individual potential in a positive, nurturing environment.
