Development Programme

Our Development programme is an excellent choice for students who would like to be pushed further in their dance training. The children in this programme have options from formal examinations to open classes. The exams are held annually and are an asset for any dancer if they decide to look for work within the industry. Aside from exams and classes, children in this programme get to do performances, workshops, social events and are able to put their name down for a solo/duo/trio/squad for our In-House comp teams. This is the stepping stone to progress into the regional competition scene.

BBO STUDENT MEMBERSHIPS
