Arnold Schwarzenegger took it to help with his bodybuilding poses, Jean Claude Van Damme for his martial arts and he says, “if you can survive a ballet workout, you can survive a workout in any other sport.” Steve McLendon of the New York Jets says, "It keeps you injury-free — your ankles, keeps your feet strong, your toes strong; you get away from knee injuries."Whether you are an athlete looking to improve your skills, or just have an interest in learning ballet,Northeastern Ballet Theatre will be offering an all ages boys class taught by instructor John Ling in their Wolfeboro studio (26 Glendon Street, across from Rite Aid) on some Saturdays beginning January 19 from 3:00-4:00pm.

John trained with the Joffrey Ballet School in New York as well as New York Conservatory, among others. He has also appeared in musicals such as 42nd Street, Kismet and A Chorus Line.

BigFish is located in the McConnell Center next door to NBT. BigFish provides support for teens to leave conventional school and build an education of their own based on personal interests, skills and passions. BigFish believes students who drive their own educational choices are intrinsically motivated to seek out challenges, solve problems, invent solutions, and become better versions of themselves. Teens will receive a mentor and with mentors, teens will track progress, make plans for the future, and facilitate connections with the wider world. BigFish will consistently run classes in basic math, advanced math, literature, writing, history, and all levels of Spanish. Additional classes, workshops, and tutorials will be offered on a variety of topics. The schedule will be a reflection of the interests and expertise of our students, core staff, community teachers & volunteers. Please visit bigfishnh.org for details. NBT has also set up a similar collaboration with Brewster Academy www.brewsteracademy.org in Wolfeboro.
