We did it, five wonderful performances of BDA's The Little Mermaid are complete. We couldn't be more proud of each and every BDA dancer. Thank you to everyone who made this a hugely successful show: the teachers, staff, dancers, countless volunteers, stage crew, dance parents, alumni and so many other members of our extended BDA family. Another magical BDA show is in the books! (Now everyone get some well-deserved rest!)
Our Summer class schedule, including Mommy & Me, Preschool, Kindergarten, open classes, and July Workshop is HERE!
Welcome to BDA
Member of the Royal Academy of Dancing and the Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing.
Our fundamental goal is to provide exceptionally high quality training to our students, ages 3 ½ through adult, in Creative Movement, Classical Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Modern Theater. A major focus of our program is to ensure each student, from our youngest four year olds through adults, receive individual attention and a true enrichment to their overall educational experience. The dedicated teachers and staff strive to instill creativity and personal growth in each dancer while maintaining traditional technique and strong performance skills. The BDA's examination program is internationally recognized and builds each dancer's confidence through determination and professionalism.
Our students have the wonderful opportunity to perform in our full June stage production at Highline Performing Arts Center each year, a magical time for all involved. Our senior dancers also perform at their special Holiday Showcase in December, as well as at area rest homes, and have the opportunity to attend dancing conventions from New York and L.A., working closely with many top choreographers in the country.
“Pre-school to adult, the classes are great, teachers are amazing and the end of year production can't be beat!” -Cynthia H.
“My family has been dancing with British for many years. They have an amazing way of instilling dance into the hearts of the dancers. I danced at British as a child, and my kids are now dancers there. They continue to have amazing shows, and teach amazing skills to their dancers.” -Tracy W.
“My daughters have grown so much since joining the BDA. The instructors are very dedicated to their students. As a result, my daughters have a very high dedication to the arts. Highly recommend the BDA!” -Hector G.
