About

Ballet and All That Jazz has offered exceptional dance technique training in Hagerstown for over 30 years. Director Ranelle Flurie aims to create a safe, friendly, and positive environment for dancers of all skill levels. BTJ instructors have strong dance backgrounds and the Crestwood Drive location was designed specifically as a dance school, with spacious studios and changing areas for students. Training is offered in classical ballet, jazz, contemporary, tap, modern and hip-hop for students starting at age 3. In addition to their regular programs, the BTJ Junior, Senior, and Tap companies have been invited to perform at Hollyfest, The Nutcracker at the Maryland Theatre, The National Cherry Blossom Parade in
Washington, D.C., and many other events. The BTJ companies challenge dancers to sharpen their skills by auditioning to be a part of these exclusive groups. Community outreach is a core value at BTJ. We perform Act 2 of The Nutcracker with our advanced ballerinas through the holiday season, have partnered with Ballet Theatre of Maryland and have created the
BTJ Dancers Program working with the HHA. Visit us on the web at www.balletandallthatjazz.com or on our facebook page, or call us at 301.797.2100 for more information.
