The Ballet Philippines Dance School
Originally called the CCP Dance School, the BP Dance School is the official school of Ballet Philippines. The school has a long history of existence, dating back to 1970 when the BP founders started the CCP Summer Dance Workshop.
The BP Dance School is the professional training ground of the country’s most promising young talents in dance. With a unique curriculum that encompasses various dance styles and techniques, the systematized method and approach to instruction takes highly into account children’s anatomy and psyche at various ages and levels so that the training is physically safe, technically effective and artistically enriching for all children.
Constantly at work and in performance with acclaimed local and international dance artists, the students are distinctively different from other students. Discipline, dedication and full knowledge of theater decorum and etiquette are the core values that the system imparts together with technique training and artistic mastery.
Regular courses in dance (Classical and Modern Ballet for all levels) including specialized lecture series and workshops are offered from June to March. From April to May, the school conducts the Summer Dance Workshop, a five-week intensive technique and total dance training culminating in a dance and choreographer’s showcase at the CCP Main Theater.
