Summer Ballet – 2024

Come dance with us this summer as we not only enjoy our classical ballet technique but character work, strength training, history and nutrition sessions!

Six-Week Summer Intensive

6/24/2024 – 8/1/2024

Thrilling Thursdays – 3 & 4 yr. olds

These classes will be a learning and developmental opportunity for 3 & 4 year olds. They will discover the joy of music and movement, learning to express themselves creatively. With the use of props and stories, your child will gain confidence, fine motor skills, coordination, musicality, and learn basic ballet terminology.

Thursday 3:30pm-4:30pm

RAD Pre-Primary & Primary

This class is for the continued development of movement skills, expression, and musicality in the young dancer. Choreographic sequences are introduced, which continue the advancement of spatial awareness. At the end of this six week program, dancers will perform in front of family and friends.

Thursday 3:30pm-5:00pm


At the plié level, dancers begin their barre work and are introduced to more complex character technique and musical rhythms. At this level, we will be introducing pre-pointe primer with additional stretching and strengthening exercises, moving dancers closer to their pre-pointe work.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 4:30pm-6:00pm, Thursday 4:30pm-7:30pm


With this class additional technique and ballet vocabulary are introduced. The student’s repertoire of movement, timing and complexity become more integrated. The performance and musical aspects of ballet are increasingly demanding.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 4:30pm-6:30pm, Thursdays 4:30pm-7:30pm


This class is pivotal in the young dancer’s education. It is an exciting age to master more technically demanding aspects of ballet. Bodies are now neurologically capable of mastering more complex progressions of the ballet technique.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 6:00pm-8:00pm, Thursday 4:30pm-7:30pm


This class introduces dancers to performance skills and involve increasingly demanding levels of physical development and technique. The student’s repertoire of movement, timing and complexity become more integrated offering the potential to advance into solo performance and pointe work. Classes are focused on technique, pre-pointe, pointe work and solo performance with attention to mastering the essential connection of mind and body. Complementary exercises will increase flexibility, joint mobility and muscle strength to enable students to safely manage increasing physical demands on their body.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday 6:00pm-8:00pm, Thursday 4:30pm-7:30pm

Adult Ballet

This technique is a phenomenal compliment to any ballet class you are currently taking. This class is laying the foundation for ballet technique with its terminology and positions. The fundamentals of posture, core development, flexibility and fluidity are reinforced as students progress through a full, classical ballet barre and gracefully move to the center floor to challenge their balance and coordination with center practice exercises. The class culminates with a series of more challenging petite enchainments to further stimulate strength, stamina, ease of movement, memory and confidence.

Tuesday & Thursday 10:30am-12:00pm

Silver Swans

Silver Swans is designed by the Royal Academy of Dance to serve mature dancers where each will receive modifications in class according to their ability and physical limitations if necessary. For both novice and experienced dancers, these classes have no upper or lower age limit and no strict regime. This class delivers internal, emotional, and a physical workout where dancers sculpt their bodies, increase confidence, and physical stability and agility in a positive, like-minded atmosphere.

Wednesday 9:30am-10:30am


A continuation of the Silver Swans® program for more experienced dancers.
