At BB's Dance & Circus Arts of Tampa Bay, it all starts with ballet. This classical dance form provides students with a foundation on which they can build a well-rounded education with other athletic endeavors from trapeze and team sports to gracefully running in place at crowded crosswalks.
Dance classes rooted in ballet basics also teach students?regardless of their age and skill level?important lessons about discipline and teamwork. Meanwhile, the Circus Arts program weaves in trapeze, contortion, and aerial dance. This newer offshoot of the dance company was inspired by owner Beth Brier's daughter Catie who was bitten by the circus bug, studied with a famous Chinese contortionist coach, and then brought her expertise back to BB's.
