Summer Ballet Classes 2018
Summer ballet classes help dancers to keep up with their skills over the long break before the new dance season begins. They are also a great way for dancers new to ballet to get started!
Classes meet Monday through Friday for one or two weeks depending on level.
Schedule is subject to change based on enrollment. Classes and Intensives with low enrollment may be combined.
Preliminary and Introductory Ballet
New and returning dancers are welcome! Class will include stretches, basic ballet steps, and fun dances that incorporate the skills learned in class. Dancers should follow the studio's dress code, but hair may be in a ponytail instead of a ballet bun for this class.

Our theme for Summer 2018 is "Flexibility, Strengthening and Choreography". As such, classes will have an extended stretching and strengthening component in addition to normal barre and center work set to fun music. Classes will also have short choreography components - both to work on skills needed to pick up patterns quickly, as well as to create their own patterns set to specific music.
Dancers should follow the studio's dress code, but hair may be in a ponytail instead of a ballet bun for this class.
