All new families (and returning after 6 months or longer) will need to complete a registration form. You will not be able to select a class when Registering, it simply gets you into our system so we can review student’s information and determine if they will need an evaluation (ages 8 and up) and assist enrollment for your first time. Be sure to create your Parent Portal so you can enroll in the future and manage your account. Once your registration is submitted, our faculty will be in touch!

Once you’ve been contacted by our faculty, we will send you an Evaluation Form (ages 8 and up) to complete. We will determine the best time to complete an evaluation. During the semester, students may take a class or have a private evaluation. We request traditional ballet attire be worn with hair secure. Students may bring a water bottle to class. Please review our Rules and Policies for additional information.

Once your Evaluation is completed and your level is established by BYB faculty, the Enrollment Director can assist you in finding the correct class to enroll in through your Parent Portal that was created when you Registered. You can pay your account balance through the portal.

Our Director and Founder, Adalhi Aranda has made it her mission to create a space for all who love dance. It is our vision to have enhanced recognition, awareness, and the accompanying financial support from businesses, community partners, and schools in order to provide equal access to dance opportunities for all youth in Lexington and surrounding counties, with a special emphasis on outreach to disadvantaged or marginalized youth. We want anyone who is passionate about dance to be able to access it.

Depending on the timing and the level, students are able to join a class mid-session as long as they complete a Placement Evaluation. It may be recommended that the level be repeated the following year, depending on the amount of time missed and the progress of the student. Contact our Enrollment Director for more information.

In order to keep the instruction quality high and consistent during classes, our performance rehearsals are separate from our semester classes. We have observation week each semester as well as performance opportunities for our enrolled students, that are not required.

Our enrolled students ages 5 and up will receive updates about auditions and how to become involved in performances throughout the year.

Any age!

We will find the appropriate level for your experience with age in mind, if you are interested in beginning classes. There are many new students who have never taken ballet before and work their way up quickly with hard work and an individualized class plan. Review the “We are interested in starting classes. How do we start?” question on this page.

We also offer adult classes in yoga and ballet. Contact us if you are interested!
