Our mission, programs, and history

Our Mission

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.


Our Programs

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.


Our History

Cosmopolitan Ballet Theatre, founded in 2003 by Irina Vakhromeeva, is a multicultural organization dedicated to teaching ballet and world dance through intensive national and international workshops led by highly acclaimed dance masters.
