BTI is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization created to provide the local community the best dance can offer.  Even though the company is housed at  Dance Academy of Libertyville, we are unique in that no studio affiliation is required for company members.

Company members are given the opportunity to perform in an annual full length ballet.

Our purpose is to share with our community the art of dance through the talent of our company members. We focus on enhancing the training of more serious dancers, providing them with opportunities to perform high quality productions. 

Each company member will have a chance to work with outstanding teachers and guest artists in a positive learning environment.
