In the words of Martha Graham, “Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.”

camilleAt CBT we are CHANGING LIVES THROUGH DANCE, and one of our main ingredients is passion. Take a look at what a day in the life of a dancer is truly all about with Australian Ballet Coryphee Benedicte Bemet: A Day in the Life with Benedicte Bemet

In the May 19, 2014 article “With a slip of the foot…, ” dance writer Rachel Thomas explains “Time spent in the studio is often integral to the development of new works, as choreographers take inspiration from their dancers and the individual qualities of their bodies.”


We’re sure it has been a big week for our student Ashley, who has been performing in American Ballet Theatre’s (ABT) Cinderella at the Kennedy Center. This was quite an honor; not only because ABT is one of the world’s finest performing arts organizations, but also because Ashley was able to learn from two internationally acclaimed Principal Dancers, Julie Kent and Xiomara Reyes, both of whom are planning retirement in the near future.

How did Ashley earn such an honor? First, she is a hardworking and talented dancer who has trained and performed with us for years. Second, she has earned coveted summer intensive opportunities with ABT – New York. Third, she has been exposed to the ABT-developed National Training Curriculum, right here at Classical Ballet Theatre in Herndon!
