competitive ballet program
BDBA Competitive Ballet Program is intended for serious dancers interested in attending prominent ballet competitions and festivals. Entering a reputable dance competition is a rewarding learning experience and an occasion for dancers to get feedback on their technique and artistry from highly respected members of the dance community.
The selected competitions are paired with workshops and master classes offered by renowned instructors from international level schools and companies who will award scholarships to summer intensives, nationally recognized schools and college programs.
Students will have the possibility to participate in three competitions/ festivals in either solos, duos, trios and/ or in groups. The pieces presented will consist of excerpts and variations belonging to the classical repertory and original creations as well.
“Being a part of the Competitive Program with Brooke Desnoes was for me an amazing opportunity to continue developing advanced technical dance skills while making great friends. Competing under Brooke's supervision was a great experience that helped me build tremendous confidence.”
– Olga Petiteau, YAGP NYC Finalist / Former student / Soloist with Atlantic Ballet Theatre.
