Ballet Edge Detroit ("BED") was founded by Erica Briganti and Angel Lavery in 2017 with a dream to bring a refreshing twist on classical ballet to Metro Detroit. Their shared love of ballet and performance sparked a desire to provide dancers, and the community, the chance to enjoy their passion for dance.
BED has performed at many of Detroit’s most iconic attractions and events, including the Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit Design Ball, Motor City Choreography and the Detroit Auto Show, to name a few. Each performance offers a unique style of dance and movement, which blends classical ballet with a modern flare to create an unforgettable, visceral experience.
In a short period of time, the Company has grown into a strong, diverse group of women from vastly different walks of life, and their shared passion for dance is only part of who they are. Check out the "Meet Our Dancers" page to learn more.
Christina is an essential part of BED's beginning and continued success. BED was born from Angel and Erica meeting at Christina's Adult Ballet in Farmington Hills, MI. We thank Christina for her guidance and use of her studio space where BED rehearses. Check out her website link below for her current class schedule and stop in to take classes with BED!
