Summertime is the most relaxed time of year for students--a time when they are free to focus on physical activities. This naturally creates an openness to trying new things, letting go of stresses and anxieties that may have been impeding their advancement during the school year, and undertaking more strenuous or challenging classes. It is a perfect time to study with a different teacher, learn more advanced techniques and try to progress to the next level.
Instructors, likewise, have more time and opportunity during the summer to arrange private lessons for students who request individual assistance in reaching specific personal goals. This may mean preparing for junior and high school talent auditions, creating dance programs for upcoming competitions, or working with athletes who seek the benefits of ballet in the areas of flexibility, strength, balance, grace, and musicality. BBT accommodates a wide range of student requests during the summer.
