Dancing and presenting work like ours is a privilege, in large part because every performance is built upon the shoulders of volunteers who love dance and theater and want great work to continue.
Our productions require more than just dancers – BT-SLO has been fortunate to draw on the talents and goodwill of many to do costuming, sets, stage management, music, special event coordination, cooking, supervision, and advertising.
If you've ever helped one of BT-SLO's past performances: thank you!

BT-SLO is a registered 501(c)(3) federal non-profit, and all donations are tax deductable.
BT-SLO's Scholarship Fund temporarily supplements class tuition for company dancers at our studio on a per-case basis. Without this fund, a few of our dancers – whether because of work, school, or family – would not be able to dance in our productions.
To give specifically for this fund, please make a donation and indicate "BT-SLO Scholarship Fund" in the notes.
Take class under our Artistic Director and with company members.
Dancers of any age are welcome, and are encouraged to modify exercises and patterns to accommodate their body's conditioning. BT-SLO strives to be a company that is welcome, open, and respectful to all.
