To succeed in ballet, students need a balance of grace, power, and artistry, not to mention hard work. BBT has added the Acting Program for students of ballet not only because it helps them with theatrical expression  but because acting reveals the inner personality of a child and helps develop a harmonious inner character that is both self-aware and empathetic. 

 

Experts have noted that studying acting also helps children become more disciplined and responsible. When compared with their peers, children who have experience acting have better-developed logic and speech, they are more coherent and imaginative, they easily find a common language with people, are more open for communication and learning, and are distinguished by purposefulness and initiative. Often, all this is associated with higher academic achievement in school and future career growth. Theatrical arts provide an excellent chance for all individuals to self-actualize, and students can start studying as early as age 2. 

In April 2018, the TALENTLAND theater troupe, a joint project of BBT and Mrs. Vassa Vassileva, won first place at the 8th Annual International Festival of Russian-Speaking Children's and Youth Theaters in Washington, DC.
