Community Outreach


A160At BYB we strive to be a leader in community dance education and performances. We love to be involved with the public and any community events. Just this past season we have participated in outreach programs at the Village Library, Berea College, Lafayette High School, Liberty Ridge Senior Living Community, LexArts Arts Showcase and Fund for the Arts Kickof, CKYO’s MusicWorks, Leadership Lexington, Thriller parade pre-show and Valley Park festivals.

Our outreach director, Jennifer Reynolds, has also taught ballet at several elementary schools for PE classes and camps and participated in the city’s collaborative Adopt A Park Program in Valley Park during Spring Break and the Summer to give children positive activities in the park during school breaks.

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

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 [email protected] 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.


The Valley Park Outreach Program

In 2013 BYB created a permanent outreach program in partnership with Parks and Recreation called the Valley Park Outreach Program. Located in the heart of the Latino community in the Cardinal Valley neighborhood, this program serves students in their own neighborhood and only charges a minimal fee for their lessons. Details about Valley Park classes are below.

Free Registration all year!

The Valley Park Outreach Project is made possible by the generosity of these supporters.


LexArts has provided funding support for the Valley Park Outreach Project through its Fund for the Arts.
