Our progression of dance, theater and tumbling classes culminate in a series of truly exceptional programs for our most motivated senior students (ages 9-18). These programs offer young artists opportunities to deepen their practice as performers, creators and collaborators in their chosen discipline and, uniquely, develop and direct original work for performance. BAX’s focus on technical and improvisational skill, creative risk-taking, and performance helps create intelligent, flexible, deeply creative young artists who often continue their study at the college or professional level. These programs require a full-year commitment and each culminates in a showcase of student-directed composition and performance work.

Dance Performance Workshop (DPW)
Level I (Ages 9-12), Level II (Ages 11-14), Level III (ages 13+)
DPW develops a ‘total artist’ encompassing the roles of dancer, performer, collaborator, creator, and observer. DPW encourages young artists to work both independently and in collaboration with peers, while honing and deepening skills in technique, performance, improvisation, partnering, and developing original choreography. Admission is by invitation.

BAXco (Ages 13+)                                                                                                                                                                                        BAXco is a pre-professional youth repertory company that performs work by some of NYC’s most vibrant and exciting professional choreographers. Company members are exposed to many styles of modern dance through workshops, classes, and performances, and perform on stages throughout NYC and beyond. Company members also gain exposure to different career paths as dance artists and learn about the administrative work of a dance company by supporting the fundraising, marketing and promotion of their work. BAXco is temporarily suspended for the 2017/18 season.

AcroBAX
Level I (Ages 9-12), Level II (Ages 10+)
Drawing on contemporary circus traditions and theatrical techniques, AcroBAX  I & II are BAX’s most advanced tumbling classes, combining modern dance, partner acrobatics, performance, and choreography skills. AcroBAXers work closely as  ensembles, developing and performing original group pieces inspired by different annual themes. Admission is by invitation.

BAX Theater Company (BTC) (Ages 9+)
Newly established in Fall 2014, BTC is a theater ensemble for young artists looking to expand their experiences in collaborative theater-making and performance. BTC ensemble members meet weekly to explore source material, create and rehearse original works, and take on key roles throughout the creative process, including performer, playwright, director, choreographer, dramaturg, set/sound/light designer and critic. Admission is by audition.
