Berkeley City Ballet’s pre-professional ballet program is for the student who aspires towards a high level of technical and artistic proficiency. Within an academy setting, the student follows a mandatory and progressive class schedule beginning with Ballet 1 to Ballet 6. All students in the pre-professional division perform in the Nutcracker and Spring Concert.
Through formal study and attention to detail, BCB prepares students for the option to enter the professional world of ballet or a college dance program if they desire to do so. Students are accepted into this program by audition only.
