With your kindness, all our programs are made possible!


The Prince George’s Contemporary Ballet Theatre (PGCBT) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was created to make contemporary ballet accessible to Brown Ballerinas. Our mission is to inspire, instruct, and educate Brown Ballerinas and provide scholarships to assist them in their training. Through our performances and outreach endeavors, we also aim to bring awareness to the mainstream that Brown Ballerinas do exist.


The PGCBT is an offshoot of the Paula Brown Performing Arts Center (PBPAC), located in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The mission of PBPAC is to provide students with comprehensive and artistic education that fosters excellence in all forms of dance, music, and theater. Students are introduced to the fundamental art of Performing Arts. Classes are taught in Ballet, Pointe, Horton, and Jazz. Children develop discipline, self-confidence, self-awareness, and pride in their accomplishment. The training the Brown Ballerinas received has given them opportunities to study at Duke Ellington School of the Arts,  Center for Visual and Performing Arts at Suitland HS, American Ballet Theatre, Joffrey Ballet School, Dance Theatre of Harlem, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, and my mentor Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy.


By making this program accessible to everyone, we strive to provide scholarships and tuition assistance through contributions, sponsorship, and in-kind payments. Your contribution supports the important work we do all year long.
