Brighton Ballet Theater was created to preserve and further the tradition of Russian classical and folk dance in New York City.
The goals of BBT are:
to provide an AFFORDABLE and PROFESSIONAL dance education and performance opportunities to all students, regardless of talent, ability or ethnic background;
to serve as a community cultural oasis;
to create a common ground through dance so children, of many ethnic and immigrant communities can interact and study other cultures through classical ballet and folk dances
By adhering to these goals, BBT hopes to mold and develop responsible, well-rounded, passionate children who have the potential to succeed in any field. Our uniquely designed children's program raises children that are both physically and mentally healthy, with an understanding of a number of different cultural backgrounds.
