BTI is a non-profit organization created to provide the local community the best dance can offer. Even though the company is housed at Dance Academy of Libertyville, they are unique in that no specific studio affiliation is required for company members. Annually BTI brings the original ballet Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer to the community stage, as well as providing other opportunities like MOVE to showcase the dancers in the area through a collaborative and supportive environment. BTI is under the direction of Isabele Elefson, Juliet Stephenson and Emily Winkler.
