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. Students are also offered a performance opportunity where they will collaborate with Brooklyn Ballet’s Artistic Director Lynn Parkerson and Next Step Director, Richard Glover. A culminating performance will be held at The Actors Fund Arts Center, in the heart of downtown Brooklyn.

In addition to training for greater technical ability, students of Next Step summer dance intensive train for performance. On the Friday of each week, students will perform in a showing for friends and parents to demonstrate the choreography and class exercises they have worked on throughout the intensive.
