Many of Burklyn Ballet Theatre’s former students are dancing in professional companies across the United States. Others are serving as faculty in ballet programs or college programs. Several Burklyn students have received awards for their choreography. We are happy to have accomplished alumni Peter Merz, Kimberly Chapman, Joseph Goodman, and Dylan Crossman return as Master Teachers.
