Brighton Ballet Theater

Students of BBT/School of Russian Ballet

Brighton Ballet Theater (BBT | The School of Russian American Ballet) is a Manhattan Beach area of Brooklyn and located on the campus of Kingsborough Community College of the City University of New York.


Three hundred students are enrolled and an additional five hundred students participate through programs in the New York City public schools. BBT instructors are professionally trained dancers who studied in Russian, Ukrainian, or American institutions. In addition, the instructors have performing, teaching and choreographing experience at ballet companies of the former Soviet Union, and USA.

Each year Brighton Ballet Theater holds two large-scale productions and countless presentations at various special events in the Tri-state area. The school hosts the Annual Children's Festival "The World of Dance" and performances of The Nutcracker (VIDEO) at the Leon M. Goldstein Performing Arts Center.

The BBT/School of Russian American Ballet also has a Summer Intensive Dance Program held in June through August of every year.
