BRT's Ballet Academy
For the last 27 years, our Academy has provided the finest professional ballet instruction in the Albuquerque area. Our goal is always to create an environment that is challenging, disciplined, and rigorous while, at the same time, safe, healthy, and nurturing. We are excited about the new season and look forward to sharing this commitment to quality dance education with you!
Ballet Repertory Theatre of New Mexico was founded in 1989 and has achieved recognition as one of the leading dance institutions in the state. Great responsibilities accompany this prominence: to train fine young pre-professional dancers and to bring the vital art of dance to the community.
The development of discipline, strength and stamina and the achievement of grace in movement are the results of years of intense study. Though few dancers will follow the road to a professional career in dance, the discipline and concentration children learn in dance classes will serve them the rest of their lives, whatever their future.
To accomplish these goals, Ballet Repertory Theatre offers each student the care, and attention they deserve. In return, Ballet Repertory Theatre demands the very best effort capable of each student. A dancer's training of both mind and body must start early.
Ballet Repertory Theatre's Academy is a training school for classical ballet students, offering a complete curriculum of ballet technique and broadened by classes in related fields. The ballet syllabus is based on classical Vaganova technique and is enhanced by 20th century dance forms and ideas.
It is impossible without a great school for Ballet Repertory Theatre to achieve and maintain a great dance company. Ballet Repertory Theatre offers young dancers the unique opportunity to observe its Senior Company in its daily classes and rehearsal, giving them the inspiration needed to sustain the years of arduous training ahead. Today's students are the future of the company -- many as discriminating, enthusiastic members of the ballet audience and for others as members of the company.
