We are excited to announce that the fall semester will begin on September 21st with both In-Person and Virtual program options for our students.

In-person classes at BAE will focus on safety first! Many safety protocols will be in place, including smaller classes, new air purification system, social distancing, masks worn at all times, continuous cleaning and sanitizing, daily health checklist, and much more. We ask you to please click on the COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidelines tab below to read BAE’s comprehensive Safety Plan.

Primary Division: For ages 6-7 entering first grade. The syllabus is specifically designed to prepare students for the requirements of Level 1 within BAE’s Pre-Professional Division. (No audition or previous experience required.)

Enrichment Division: For ages 7-14. This program is designed for children who wish to further their love and appreciation of ballet, but in a less intensive environment. (No audition or previous experience required.)

2020-2021 School Year Schedule

All class times are EST.

Our first and foremost commitment is to the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, extended families and community. If our current plan needs to change in order to put safety first, then we will do so without hesitation and with full measure.

“BAE’s Enrichment classes are a great way for my kids to stay involved with dance, but also leave time for them to pursue other interests. I’m thrilled they are leaning from exceptional faculty in such a professional facility."
