About BBT/The School of Russian American Ballet: Established in 1987, Brighton Ballet Theater/School of Russian American Ballet (BBT) is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and developing Russian classical and folk dance traditions in New York City. BBT is situated in the heart of the Russian cultural district of Brooklyn, in the Brighton Beach/Manhattan Beach area, where we offer affordable, professional dance instruction and performances on the campus of Kingsborough Community College.
More than 400 students from diverse backgrounds attend BBT each year to learn the art of dance. BBT's well-rounded curriculum is founded on the Vaganova (Russian) Method, a ballet training system not only for correct technique, but also for proper disposition; students may also pursue classes in character dance, contemporary dance, international folk dance, jazz dance, etc. Under the care and guidance of BBT’s International faculty, who graduated best ballet schools and colleges and have performed with the most prestigious ballet companies of Russia, Ukraine, and the USA, our dancers gain the skills they need for life-long health, creativity, self-discipline, personal responsibility and professional success.
