Briansky Ballet Center

Established in 1965, the Briansky Ballet Center has one goal: to provide serious students of dance with a professional training program under the supervision of a highly qualified faculty.

BBC is located in the verdant Pioneer Valley at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, MA., one of the nation’s most beautiful college campuses.

Unlike other programs, BBC is committed to developing more than just technical abilities. The confidence of each student, often overlooked, is cultivated by channeling their energies into disciplined forms of self-expression.

Students are guided in preparation for a professional career. Many former students have advanced to professional engagements with such companies as the New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, the Pennsylvania Ballet, and the San Francisco Ballet, as well as various regional and foreign companies.

Students must have a minimum of two years previous training. Following an initial class, our faculty determines the placement of the student in either intermediate or advanced classes. All classes are accompanied by piano and held in our spacious studios.

A 2-hour class is given every morning at all levels, Monday through Saturday. Ballet classes are also held in the afternoon and include pointe, variations and repertory. Jazz & Broadway Dance Theatre and Choreographic Workshops are taught in the afternoon. Rehearsals are scheduled on some evenings in preparation for the final performance.

Staff and counselors are carefully selected for their interest in young people and their competence in dance and music. Counselors provide individual student supervision and are responsible for organizing group activities and pastimes. Housemothers are present at all times to look after the students and offer personal help or advice.
