In keeping with its long-term vision to provide dance opportunities to all in the Boston area, JMBT has launched a Young Dancers Program in Dorchester for children ages 3 to 13. At our Dorchester Studio, students will participate in our comprehensive dance curriculum, learn from our exceptional faculty and enjoy a nurturing environment. At JMBT, we believe that ballet is for everyone and support students in the pursuit of personal excellence.
JMBT’s Dorchester campus offers ballet classes for children ages 3-13, from Creative Dance to Ballet Level III. If you are interested in advanced classes for your child, please visit our Cambridge Studio page.
The Dorchester Studio – located at 14 Cushing Avenue – will grow in future years to offer classes for students of all ages. Classes are open to boys and girls of all backgrounds. No dance experience necessary.
