Summer Ballet is a great way for young children to sample their first class, and for older advanced students to hone their technique and explore the artistry of dance. Our programs provide a chance for students of all ages to grow as dancers in a fun and nurturing environment. One - four week sessions are available for students age 3-18. A Back To School Workshop offered in late summer/early fall is designed to help advanced students prevent injury as they ease back into their fall dance schedule.
