Instructors

Our instructors are excited to work with your child and help guide them on their artistic path in a caring and nurturing environment. ​Many of our instructors also work within the Lompoc Unified School District as coaches, dance educators, and choreographers.  

Our mission is to provide students with quality dance training, at an affordable cost, while building self-confidence and promoting individuality, commitment, and discipline. We are dedicated to instilling values, pride, and confidence in children from our community. Each student will receive technical dance instruction and the opportunity to develop his/her dance style. Our classes consist of 8-16 students per class, allowing the students to receive more individualized attention. We are committed to providing a loving, nurturing environment for students to learn the art of dance while making every student feel important.

Catrina Boscutti is BBT's Artistic Director and ballet and jazz instructor at Boscutti Ballet Theatre. She works with students aged six through young adulthood to find their passion for the arts through creative and exciting learning techniques she has learned from over two decades of experience. She currently choreographs competitive dance routines for Lompoc High School, including group pieces and solos. She has trained with The Kirov Academy of Ballet and State Street Ballet and was a member of the State Street Ballet Young Dancers for several years.
