Who We Are
Who We Are
Welcome to Ballerinas Why Not?! ("Bailarinas Por que Não?!", known by its Portuguese acronym “BPN”), a dance school and wellness space exclusively for adults who are interested in taking on exciting new challenges. The school aims to break taboos imposed by society about body image, age and limitations.
Inaugurated in 2015 by journalist, teacher and amateur dancer Cláudia Bengtson, BPN initially attended a group of women determined to fulfill their dream of being ballerinas despite the common notion of being “too old”.
Today, with diverse activities that include not only dancing but also classes that promote physical and mental wellbeing, BPN is proud to bear the hallmark of welcoming and understanding adult students of all ages to share in the love of dance!
BPN is not a school that will train professional dancers, but we strive for excellence in teaching. We are committed to achieving results while respecting each student’s unique pace and learning needs.
At BPN, YOU are the star, and we can’t wait to welcome you in our dance school!
