Founded in 1976, Burklyn Ballet Theatre's goal is to bring to the world of dance a program of the highest artistic caliber, employ the best teachers, and give performance opportunities to all participating dancers in a beautiful and safe environment. Based on British repertory theatre, the schedule affords dancers the opportunity to learn and perform ballets in a short period. The dancers learn many aspects of professional dance company life in a positive environment.
We believe that every dancer who chooses to attend Burklyn Ballet Theatre in the summer is a very special person with star quality.
Dancers have come to Burklyn Ballet Theatre from all 50 states with a small percentage traveling from Canada, Saudi Arabia, Denmark, Mexico, Iceland, Israel, France, Puerto Rico, Hungary, Pakistan, and Great Britain. They range in age from 12 to the mid 20's, with the majority between 14 - 17 years. All dancers must be at an intermediate level with strong pointe work.
