I go to Brighton Ballet and I can say that it's a great school. This is
my seventh year with the BBT family and I have enjoyed all this time. I
love the fact that we don't only take classes, but we also get the
opportunity to perform and experience how it feels to be on stage. I'm
not planning to become a professional dancer, but the experience that I
gained in BBT will always stay with me.

My family has been connected to the Brighton Ballet Theater for more
than 15 years. My three daughters have attended this school, and I hope
the youngest will enjoy this school for at least ten more years.
Brighton Ballet is not just a school, it is cultural center which brings
together children, their parents, and grandparents with the beautiful
world of music and dance. Dance education is provided with professional
dancers who love children and know how to work with children of
different ages and different abilities. There are classes for children
of all ages between two and 18. Classrooms are spacious, bright and
clean and there is always live music in class during the lesson.
The Brighton Ballet School is different from other schools because they
treat every child as an individual. Not only do they teach dance, but
they help the children through their school years, and are glad for
children in academic victories and other successes. They help prepare
children for specialized high school tests and for college auditions.
Although only a few students will become professional dancers, Brighton
Ballet gives all students the skills to succeed in life. I know it
firsthand. My oldest daughter is at Harvard, and middle daughter is at
Mark Twain school.

I am a current student of Brighton Ballet Theatre and I have never
enjoyed taking class as much as I do here. Having gone through many
ballet schools, I can say without a doubt BBT is very special and
unique. BBT's instructors are all at very professional levels who know
how to teach very high quality levels of dance. Each ballet class is
accompanied with live music, which is very essential and unfortunately,
rare to find in NYC ballet schools. Every student is paid attention to,
no matter what their current level of skill is. Teachers strive to bring
out the best dancer one can be, understanding that each individual is
different and has different abilities. Brighton Ballet Theatre is a
top-notch ballet school, which is why students return year after year
without thoughts of leaving.

We thank the Brighton Ballet for the opportunity given to our daughters
to be a part of the exposure to the "world of dance" not only for my
daughters but for the whole family. Our daughters started their dancing
experience this year and its been great. One daughter is introduced to
beginning classical ballet classes, and the other to modern dance and
charleston dance classes. We hope they'll continue to En Pointe class.
Thanks to all for your incredible work as we greatly appreciate all the
hard work. The BBT school at KCC has a professional staff: wonderful
teachers, costume designers and music director.

My daughter goes to Brighton Ballet for 3 years and enjoy very much.
She keeps dancing when she comes home and teaches me to do so.
The individual attention makes us work more for weaknesses and to be
better. My belly dance is the special part too! I didn't know that I can
be good and watch as new people come and day by day they are better and
Me and my daughter dance on the stage, if there is anyway I could
possible do it in my life?!! Only in Brighton Ballet!!!
Thank you ! Thank you for my new friends !

Brighton Ballet is a great dance school where children of all ages get
the opportunity to learn with amazing teachers that provide a lot of
attention to every individual student. The productions of the school
allow the children to dance professionally and give them the chance to
be on a stage. This school is like a second home to many students, where
your teachers teach you valuable lessons for life, and the kids grow up

my granddaugher's developing love for dance in an atmosphere that is
encouraging and professional. Kudos to Irina and the rest of the team!

My daughter has been going to dance classes at BBT since she was two
years old (she is now 5) and loves it. The instructors are gentle and
loving with small children but in a way that encourages learning and
love of dancing. This is a very well-organized and professional school
that brings forth the best qualities of its students.

The nurturing professional atmosphere created from the time the children
are 2 1/2 make them love the dance. they enjoy the classes and as they
grow they are eager to attend the classes and participate in the
programs. Of the afterschool activities that my daughter is involved in
BBT is effortless and enjoyable for our whole family.

The BBT/School of Russian Ballet is a brilliant school, teaching many
different forms of dance, including hip-hop, ballrooom, latin dances,
modern dance, ballet, and toddler groups for children ages 2 and older.
The school offers great teaching classes at all times of the week. The
school also offers scholarships for dance for the children wanting to
get involved in the program. Many children of all ages, even adults come
to learn dance for fun. The school has many concerts over the course of
the year, like the ballet The Nutcracker, story The Ugly Duckling, and
yearly performance concerts. Over 400 kids go to the school every year,
and many more tend to come later for try-outs. The school is a wonderful
place to learn dance.
