Cosmopolitan Ballet Theatre (CBT) is a multicultural organization dedicated to teaching ballet and world dance through intensive national and international workshops led by acclaimed professors and dance masters.

CBT’s mission is twofold: to give the dedicated dancer a complete education comprised of professional level dance training along with a well rounded exposure to global arts, cultures and languages, and to provide dance teachers the opportunity to continue their education and expand their knowledge through exposure to master teachers of classical ballet.

CBT provides workshops for intermediate and advanced dancers and teachers who want to learn about dance from a global perspective. Dancers and teachers enjoy world class instruction in ballet and world dance at both a critical and practical level while experiencing different world cultures and traditions.

CBT’s program is truly a total immersion experience incorporating the opportunity to travel abroad, study dance, experience a new culture, and practice a new language.

We are now accepting applications for our exciting summer 2016 intensive ballet programs and our teacher workshops in Washington, DC, Berlin, Germany and St. Petersburg, Russia!

To learn more about us and our programs, contact us with any questions, and Like us on Facebook to become part of Cosmopolitan Ballet Theatre’s Community. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you this summer!

  • Irina is a phenomenal teacher and inspiration to all dancers. The CBT Workshop in Berlin, Germany, was the experience of a lifetime, and as well with her classes. I enjoyed every minute of it!
