Non-technique classes include acting for dancers, nutrition, injury prevention, and ballet history. Admission is by audition or DVD. Because each program is limited to 16 places, dancers can expect an extremely high level of individualized attention and coaching. Learn more about Summer Intensive 2017.
Our Children's Program
BCA offers a wide-range of classes for children ages 3 plus, including ballet, tap/jazz, broadway jazz, and hip-hop. These classes are open to anyone and include beginner and intermediate level young dancers. While most children enroll at the beginning of the year, we encourage all interested parents to contact us regarding class availability anytime during the year. Young dancers with a serious interest in ballet may want to learn more about our Beginner Pre-Professional program.
Dancers in our Children's program perform in BCA's annual recital at the Diana Wortham Theatre in downtown Asheville. In addition, we welcome our talented young dancers to audition for BCA's Nutcracker and Spring ballets.
Our Boy's Program
BCA offers boys ages 7 plus a robust program of dance including Boys ballet class, regular ballet class, modern, jazz, and tap. We make every attempt to keep our boys together so they can build important bonds between themselves and their teachers. Boys with a serious interest in ballet are also encouraged to learn more about our Pre-Professional division. Our experience has shown that well-trained boys are often offered full scholarships to many of the finest summer intensive programs. In addition, boys that complete our Pre-Professional program should be presented with a wide variety of opportunities at the college and professional level.
Boys play important roles in BCA ballets, especially the Nutcracker. We strongly encourage all our boys to participate in our productions as well as our annual recital, all of which occur at the Diana Wortham Theatre in downtown Asheville.
Special Resources for Mom & Dads of BCA Boys
We've pulled together some great resources that can help moms and dads of BCA male dancers become familiar with the opportunities and challenges that are presented to boys dancing. Make sure to download your copy and read it thoroughly.
