Welcome, new students!





Trial Class


BBT offers a TRIAL CLASS for just $12 for all new and potential students who would like to experience BBT’s expert instruction, warm and welcoming environment and multitude of class choices for themselves. This is a great way for students to find a class that meets their needs and to get acquainted with faculty, peers, and scheduling options before making a commitment.


Additionally, during the same week as the trial class, new and potential students may take two additional classes with different instructors or in other styles and levels for ONLY $12 each!


New Pre-professional/Advanced Division students must schedule an audition for placement.


Auditions & Placement
All BBT programs, including Summer Programs, require auditions for:


The audition takes place during a regularly-scheduled, one-hour class led by a BBT instructor on the campus of Kingsborough Community College in Manhattan Beach for students. Open Audition Days are also scheduled from time to time. Check our Announcements and Calendar for relevant dates.


To reserve a spot on Open Audition Day or to schedule an audition and/or registration appointment at another time, please contact the main BBT office at 718.769.9161 or at registration@brightonballet.org.


BBT maintains a family-friendly, welcoming and supportive atmosphere: there is no need to be nervous about your audition. We want to find the right opportunity for you and ensure you are comfortable with class requirements, expectations and instruction.  


While auditions are an essential part of placing students in the correct level and grade, especially for our Advanced/Pre-professional students, please be advised that sometimes placement decisions are tweaked again after the first few classes. School administration reserves the right to change a student’s class to a more suitable class if the teacher deems a transfer is in the student’s best interest.
