SUMMER 2022

This program provides students with exceptional clarity and strength while encouraging a life-long love of dance and healthy body image. Live accompaniment, enrichment in modern and character dance along with promotion of health and well-being complete the training.

Students enrolled in the Summer add to their skills and explore new movement in condensed programs that bridge to the fall classes and provide for flexibility of summer schedules. 

We welcome new students at anytime. Please call or email for more information 651-690-1588 and spb@spballet.org

Summer: Beginning Ballet 2/ Level 1

We remain committed to equity and inclusiveness, especially for those who are marginalized, and understand that the pandemic will hit some in our community harder than others. ​Closures of non-profits have a profound effect on the financial health of artists and children in our program.

Our organization is a non-profit and our staff are hourly employees. Please consider a DONATION at this time to “keep the lights on” and supplement our staff.  Their contribution to the vitality of our lives is hard to quantify: beautiful movement and music sparks our imaginations, gives us meaning, helps us understand our world and gives us great personal satisfaction.
