Ellen Claire with her Mother Grace
I have often said Children's Ballet Theater  means so much more to Sammye Kate and I than dance. It’s her happy place, her 2nd home, her extended family. No matter how tough her day, she looks forward to class. I’m so grateful for all the opportunities Sammye Kate has had and all the friendships made along the way. Those girls are precious and CBT teachers are awesome."

My daughter began ballet class with Children's Ballet Theater as a first grader. She is now in high school and continues to dance with Children's Ballet Theater! We've watched her grown into a confident, strong, disciplined young woman. I truly believe that her ballet training with Children's Ballet Theater has had a huge impact on her young life. Children's Ballet Theater instructors are remarkable women and men who encourage children and youth to excel at dance and dance to the best of their ability. The instructors and director make a point to showcase an individual dancer's strongest ability while teaching the class to work together as a whole and rely on each other as a team. I will be forever grateful to Children's Ballet Theater for my daughter's experience and the confidence that she has gained, not only as a dancer but also confidence in herself.

There are not enough words to describe the incredible experience my daughter gets at Children's Ballet Theater. Her technique, form, and knowledge of French and Russian ballet is far superior than many high school dancers we know. The productions are beyond impressive -- it is hard to remember that almost the entire cast is a child or teenager! The teachers are top notch: they teach the dancers in such a way that it is the perfect combination of structured ballet with a loving touch. And the community absolutely is the most wonderful experience for any dancer. CBT makes sure the kids and teens don't just learn the fundamentals of ballet, they learn discipline, focus, being a part of a team and supporting one another, understanding yourself, and all around just being a wonderful human. The friendships and fellowship amongst the dancers, and the teachers, leave a lasting impression with the kids and parents. Can't recommend CBT enough!
