About the Next Step Program

Brooklyn Ballet’s Next Step program (Ages 8–18) is designed to give each participant a solid technical foundation, based in classical training, upon which to build his or her own creative power. We aim to prepare dancers for professional and high school performing arts auditions while cultivating increased technical ability. Faculty include Next Step Director Nikki Hefko, David Fernandez, Heather Heiner, Julia K. Gleich, Stephanie Godino, Tammi Shamblin, Adelheid Sterlick, and Brooklyn Ballet Faculty Members Patty Foster, Catherine Green, and Meghan Brunke with special guest artists.

Students are also offered a performance opportunity where they will collaborate with Brooklyn Ballet's Artistic Director Lynn Parkerson and other professional choreographers. A culminating performance will be held at The Actors Fund Arts Center, in the heart of downtown Brooklyn at the end of the program. Our goal is to cultivate strong, well-trained, educated and independent dancers.
