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.

Slide 2

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 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.

Slide 5

Education & Culture

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

Slide 6

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!

Based on a true story...While on his death bed, Pedro Linares, a Mexican piñata maker, dreams that the elements of earth transform themselves into colorful, strange creatures who shout "Alebrijes!" at him. After following each creature through its own world, Pedro miraculously recovers and creates one of the most beloved Mexican folk art in modern day...Alebrijes!
