The BBO seeks to create an atmosphere of care and support for the individual within a unique 'family' ethos. The emphasis is on awakening and nurturing within students the physical, emotional, artistic and expressive qualities and challenges the art form provides. The Organisation aims to listen, respond and adapt to the changing needs of students and teachers at every level and through this, encourages a positive attitude towards an active, healthy lifestyle.

The BBO aims to ensure safe dance practice and to provide access and equal opportunities for all.
