Every year in the months of May/June, Brighton Ballet Theater hosts final performances for its CASA , SU-CASA and Cultural Immigrant Initiative grants. We are extremely grateful for the opportunities to work in public schools and senior centers and share our passion for art and dance with other people.
In this FY 2018 CASA Program, BBT partnered again with 3 public schools, which are located in Districts 47 (CM Mark Treyger) and 48 (CM Chaim Deutsch). We have worked with 2nd and 3rd Graders in P.S. 215 Morris H. Weiss and 6th, 7th and 8th Graders in I.S. 228 David A. Boody and I.S. 98 Bay Academy. This year, by the fortunate coincidence, there was a Disney-themed program in all three schools, which was a big success and was very well welcomed by the students.

Cultural Immigrant Initiative:
This year as part of the Cultural Immigrant Initiative, BBT offered a series of workshops and free performances in two senior centers: TRUMPS United NORC on Neptune Avenue and also at TRUMPS United on West 5th St. to teach seniors other cultures and improve their emotional, mental and physical health in a collaborative and relaxing environment. The dance workshops addressed seniors’ neuromuscular coordination, core strength, balance, poise and memory and helped to foster a positive outlook and feelings of belonging among seniors.
