2015-16 Upper Division Academy Program – Ages 12 and up

Classical Ballet Theatre's Upper Division curriculum puts deliberate emphasis on pre-professional achievement with a graded program and syllabus that provides a strong foundation for those students who wish to pursue a professional track training program. The Upper Division syllabus includes training in classical and contemporary/modern technique, pointe, and variations. Master Class opportunities with esteemed faculty from Professional Companies around the country are provided. Dancers in the Upper Division are required to perform in CBT's two Major Productions. Additional Specialty Performances will be available for the members of the Ballet Theatre Youth Company (BTYC).

Students are promoted to the next level when they have successfully mastered their current level of study as presented in their end-of-year exam.

Students new to CBT must audition for this program. To schedule your audition please contact Kim Brummett at 703-471-0750 or info@cbtnva.org.
