Summer Programs 2017


Registration is ongoing for our six weeks of Summer Programs of Ballet Intensives, Dance Camps, Choir & Musicals Camps. 


Summer tuition is not due for existing families until July 1, so please register now if you plan to join us for summer classes.  We can plan better if we know in advance who will be attending in which levels.  Thank you!


In additional to our own fabulous teachers, we will be joined by special guest teachers this year including a former dancer of Canada's National Ballet.  


More details coming soon! 

Be a Summer Host Family!

Summer homestay

if you can host a ballet student for one or two weeks this summer, please contact the office. Summer Homestay is much less involved for families than a full school year as students train with us all day.
