Located within the Salt Lake valley, Children’s Ballet Theatre is the most comprehensive dance facility within the Salt Lake Area. We have 7 large studios and a full-sized black box theatre which allows our students to have the opportunity to do professional runs of performances as well as choreograph and produce their own shows.
The principal aim of CBT is to provide its students with proper, qualified instruction in the performing arts. With this development comes poise, agility and grace of movement.
According to our Founder, and Director, Julie Orlob, “Ballet is, first and foremost, a performing art.” It was with this philosophy that Julie first opened her beautiful school in 1969.
While it is a school, CBT also provides the thrill of performing—the make-up, the lights, and the audiences. Here, at CBT, we feel that only through carefully planned performances can a child develop a strong love for, and appreciation of the performing arts. CBT is dedicated to providing as many quality performance opportunities as possible to our young performers.
CBT is strongly dedicated to the correct training of its students. Technique must be introduced at the right age and is of paramount importance in the education of dancers. It ensures faultless technique and distinction of styles, whereas errors permitted at the beginning of dance training become increasingly serious impediments as the student progresses. At CBT, our syllabi have been developed over 50 years of experience and are taught throughout each level of our curriculum.
The teachers at Children’s Ballet Theatre have a vast range of experience across disciplines and are trained to ensure each child is receiving correct teaching to reach their full potential. Our collective approach is to share our love of dance while being supportive and encouraging.
