Calling all BAE alumni!

Please send us an update on where life has taken you since your BAE days. Whether your news is big or small, and whether it is related to dance, school, work, family or other, we want to know about it - even if you think we already know! Photos are welcome too.

We plan to publish a quarterly newsletter in order to be able to share with you about the wonderful and inspiring happenings in the lives of our alumni.

Please share this information with your BAE friends in case we've lost touch. We want to include as many alumni as possible.

Thank you. We look forward to hearing from you!


Alumni Class Policy: Alumni, we hope that whenever you're in town you'll stop by to visit and, of course take class. Please note the special alumni tuition policy: Alumni who are dancing either as apprentices or full company members are invited to take classes at no charge. Alumni who are trainees or college students receive a 20% discount on all courses. Remember, we always look forward to seeing you!

Join the Alumni Mailing List!

BAE alumni are dancing professionally in companies throughout the country. To the right is a list showing where some of our dancers are currently and formerly employed. In addition many of our alumni are utilizing the valuable life lessons gained from their experience at BAE at college level and in exciting non-dance professions. We are very proud of all our alumni!
