Because it is important to reach young children who have never been exposed to the beauty of ballet and JBT brings dance to the schools. The JBT is committed to the community and to thousands of public school children that attend its student performances. These performances are made possible through corporate donations and students are charged a nominal fee. In addition, lectures and demonstrations are conducted to provide children with a better understanding of what it takes to be a dancer.


As a part of the JBT's commitment to education, the organization has established the Alicia Alonso Scholarship Fund for the training of young, talented dancers who families cannot afford the cost. Supported by community members and grants, the scholarship provides for the cost of training, costumes and performance fees. The scholarship fund is named for the famous Cuban prima ballerina. JBT is strongly committed to insuring that no child in the community is excluded from the opportunity to audition, train and perform because of financial need.
