Stay tuned for details on the 2021 Education Program!
Our Education program offers instruction in ballet, pre-pointe, pointe, conditioning and choreography. This life-changing opportunity is offered to students who are selected to participate.
The goal of the program is to provide young dancers with the memories, experiences, and inspiration to reach for the next level of dance—whether that is a career in dance or a life enriched by the discipline, commitment, graceful movement, healthy exercise, and knowledge of one of the world’s most beautiful art forms.
The 2020 Education Program featured a new virtual format. We were thrilled to have Peter Boal, Artistic Director of Pacific Northwest Ballet, teach classes for our Intermediate through Advanced Level students. Mr. Boal joined PNB in 2005; prior to joining the company, his professional dance career included 22 years with New York City Ballet. He was also a full-time faculty member at the School of American Ballet from 1997 to 2005. His participation in the BSV education program is an incredible opportunity for students to receive instruction from one of the leaders in ballet education.
