The Patel Conservatory Youth Ballet's disciplined course of study enables students to grow from beginning ballet to major performing opportunities at the Straz Center including Nutcracker.
Each PCYB division has a sequence of levels designed to meet
the students’ developmental and technical needs. Classes impart a technique combining an American speed and lightness in the lower limbs while maintaining a classical port de bras.
