Community Outreach


A160At BYB we want to be a leader in community dance education and performances. We love to be involved with the public and any community events. We also want to be a strong presence in schools. We have collaborated in the past with Cardinal Valley Elementary School, Lansdowne Elementary School and with Maxwell Elementary School.

If you would like to schedule an event with us, please contact our office at 859-271-4472 or

We never turn away anyone without the financial means to afford dance lessons. A214In exchange we ask for help, such as cleaning, sewing or marketing. We believe that every child should have the right to dance regardless of their financial status.

Inquire here if you would like to receive a Work Study application, or you need more information on how we can afford your child the opportunity to receive a dance education.
