Our Mission

ELEVATE the love and respect for the arts in the Phoenix community by connecting our youth with professional productions and professional guest artists.

ENGAGE Phoenix youth through dance, physical activity and an overall human connection to inspire social acceptance. Providing and arts and humanities experience for children across levels of ability and socioeconomic backgrounds.

ENCOURAGE community service and cultural development while teaching young dancers self-confidence, manners and respect for peers.

Our goal is to provide dance education, costumes, sets and preparation for The Nutcracker Suite to children at a minimal cost. Starting in 2015, PYBT has expanded our community outreach to local organizations to provide dance and theater opportunities to children with special needs. To achieve this goal we rely on fundraising activities, sponsorship from the community and performance ticket sales.
