The Ballet Performance Group at University of Rochester aims to provide an outlet for individuals who seek to learn and perform all styles of dance while encouraging an awareness and appreciation of classical ballet. Our group's foremost goal is to keep ballet technique alive on campus by using it as a foundation for all of the styles we perform. We welcome all levels of experience and offer dances that challenge and enhance the diverse abilities of our members. Every year, we put together two shows composed of classical ballet and student-choreographed pieces. We also perform as guest groups in other University venues. As a member of BPG, you choose the number of dances you wish to participate in; one dance corresponds to one hour of practice per week. Based on your academic and extra-curricular schedule, you can be as involved as you would like!
