NBT FALL REGISTRATION DAY:

Northeastern Ballet Theatre, New Hampshire’s premier ballet company and training school, will be holding a Fall Registration day on Saturday, August 18 from 10:00am to 2:00pm at both studios, Wolfeboro (26 Glendon Street, across from Rite Aid) and Dover (The McConnell Center, 61 Locust Street, Suite 239). Because Northeastern Ballet Theatre provides the finest ballet training in the Lakes Region/Seacoast area, we welcome dancers from all studios to come take our classes and improve their technique, while still dancing at their regular studio. The ballet training provided is equal to that which you will find at any major ballet company in a major city. Northeastern Ballet Theatre’s Artistic Director and Founder is Edra Toth, a former prima ballerina for Boston Ballet Company. She believes that ballet is an art form. Within a positive and encouraging atmosphere, dancers at Northeastern Ballet Theatre are taught to develop their unique artistic abilities. Instructors at NBT encourage all dancers to be the best they can be and no drama is tolerated. Northeastern Ballet Theatre is not a competition or recital-driven school. Our classical ballet classes focus on technique for the entire year, and there are many opportunities for performance experience with Northeastern Ballet Theatre’s company, including an annual production of The Nutcracker, a spring/summer production (past productions include Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and original ballets such as The Pirate and the Gypsy and Dracula), and other opportunities as well. Participating in performances is encouraged, but not required. "Since ballet is the foundation of all movement,” says Miss Toth, " it is always easier for a ballet dancer (or a student proficient in ballet) to cross over into other modalities than vice versa. Northeastern Ballet Theatre is NOT a competition school. Ballet is an art form, not a sport. While ballet trains the body and the mind to work in unison and harmony and is very physically demanding, there is also an artistic component to it. The spirit of the dancer can shine through once the technique has been mastered and thus can achieve a level of freedom that is incomparable.” Come find out more about Northeastern Ballet Theatre on August 18.

NBT now associated with 3 different education associations for the serious dancer: Brewster Academy, Cocheco Academy of the Arts, and BigFish Learning Community.

Northeastern Ballet Theatre is now associated with three different educational institutions to offer the serious dancer the opportunity to attend school as well as dance as much as possible - Brewster Academy, Cocheco Academy of the Arts, and BigFish Learning Community. Cocheco Academy of the Arts (CATA) http://www.cochecoarts.org and Big Fish Learning Community http://www.bigfishnh.org . What NBT's association with these organizations means is that as a serious ballet dancer, one can go to school and have ballet be a part of your school day, and not just one class, but as many as you want. CATA is located in Dover and their mission is that they are "a very unique educational environment where students are given a voice and responsibility in deciding the direction of their education. Students are challenged through a rigorous college preparatory academic program while given the opportunity to explore, discover, and develop their passion and interest in the Visual and/or Performing Arts." BigFish is located in the McConnell Center next door to NBT. BigFish provides support for teens to leave conventional school and build an education of their own based on personal interests, skills and passions. BigFish believes students who drive their own educational choices are intrinsically motivated to seek out challenges, solve problems, invent solutions, and become better versions of themselves. Teens will receive a mentor and with mentors, teens will track progress, make plans for the future, and facilitate connections with the wider world. BigFish will consistently run classes in basic math, advanced math, literature, writing, history, and all levels of Spanish. Additional classes, workshops, and tutorials will be offered on a variety of topics. The schedule will be a reflection of the interests and expertise of our students, core staff, community teachers & volunteers. Please visit bigfishnh.org for details. NBT has also set up a similar collaboration with Brewster Academy www.brewsteracademy.org in Wolfeboro. The evening advanced ballet classes at NBT’s Wolfeboro studio (26 Glendon Street, Wolfeboro) are set up at a time that is convenient to Brewster students and it can be counted as their afternoon activity. If you would like more information regarding our partnership with any of these organizations, please email NBT at info@northeasternballet.org or call (603) 834-8834.
