The program supplements dancers’ weekly technique classes and gives aspiring dancers the tools they need to succeed in a professional career. Auditions for this unique training program are open to all dancers ages 8-20 in the Greater Boston area.

Dancers ages 8-12 can audition for the Relevé (REL-A-VAY) program. This introductory program is perfect for beginning students who are eager to learn.
For dancers over age 12, CBB offers a more advanced training program, the Allongé (AA-LON-JAY) program. These classes help the advanced dancers grow both technique and performing artistry. In the Allongé classes, the students focus on musicality and choreography, strengthen their pointe work, and learn classical repertoire.
All BCYB students receive unique opportunities to perform in professional productions, including City Ballet of Boston’s annual holiday classic, the Urban Nutcracker!
