BYB Mission

The mission of Bluegrass Youth Ballet is to enhance lives by providing dance education in a positive environment for all youth through high quality training, innovative performances, and cultural experiences.

Benefits of Dance

Dancers have a better understanding of their bodies, and they will gain better stamina, body control, and muscle tone. Dance increases coordination and improves musicality.

Slide 3

Discipline & Self-Respect

At BYB, dancers of all ages will be taught to interact and respect themselves, as well as other dancers, and their instructors. These are skills that are essential for life!

Slide 4

Commitment & Work

Bluegrass Youth Ballet students learn to work as part of one body, and to discover their potential as individual performers and artists.

Education & Culture

Bluegrass Youth Ballet's innovative performances incorporate cultures, and teach both dancers and audiences about their world.
