Messages from parents and students

In my youth I trained in Royal Academy of England Ballet so when my daughter showed an interest in learning ballet I was overjoyed. I was disappointed in many of the dance schools in the area. Dance classes were a mix of many dance techniques and lacked in any real focus on one technique.When I found CBT I was impressed. The class is a good mix of playful teaching of technique, introduction to vocabulary through the names of the positions, gentle corrections for proper form and posture. CBT is offering my daughter a playful dance environment while building a solid foundation in the discipline, beauty, art, grace, and poise of ballet.      Sincerely, Krys Kyle (Karalyn' Mom)


My daughter joined Classical Ballet Theatre when she was 5 years old. She has been taking classes for 4 years. The first day she cried because she was shy and nervous when she entered the classroom. Now she loves ballet, enjoys every practice, performance, and is able to stand confidently on the stage. I really appreciate Ms. Kotomi’s professional coaching and patient. Ms. Kotomi corrects every action carefully. She always encourage and support my daughter to have a confidence and keep challenging. So no matter if my daughter would able to become a ballerina, I will encourage her to continue having her ballet lessons at CBT.     Y.Z.


My daughter went to Saturday afternoon class and had a very enjoyable time dancing and learning. Parents are sitting and observing quietly. Classical Ballet Theatre gives students and parents such welcoming and encouraging atmosphere. Class size is small. Students receive hands on training. My daughter receives a lot of attention, is able to understand every single exercise. Teacher demonstrates and explains. It is so beautiful to see students progress and express with beautiful classical music and receive pure classical ballet training in positive environment. We signed up today and are looking forward to having next lessons!   A CBT mother, M.O.


Thank you so much for giving me another wonderful year at CBT. Because of you, my ballet has improved infinitely over the last four years. I truly appreciate everything you have done for me and taught me. Classical Ballet Theatre gives students an opportunity to demonstrate in front of younger
students and help children in classes and performances. Students can develop communication skills, receive leadership training, and are all inspire to improve and become helpful to everyone. I wouldn't even be remotely close to where I am today without you, Ms. Kotomi. Thank you.  CBT student, Giovanna
