At St. Paul Ballet, we have created summer training that works in conjunction with traveling for intensive programs in other cities and family summer events. The Summer Study program continues a healthy progression of in-person classes so students may improve faster and still explore a variety of dynamic classes to expand each dancer’s movement vocabulary. MORE INFORMATION & REGISTRATION>

Summer is a great time for an introduction to the basics of ballet vocabulary and technique, structure and
etiquette of the ballet class along with nurturing creative expression. Dancers in Level 2 will be able to develop increased strength, stamina, flexibility, and coordination as well as be introduced to modern technique and continue creative composition. MORE INFORMATION & REGISTRATION>

No experience necessary! Bring your joy and energy to explore the fundamentals of movement in developmentally appropriate classes. Experienced teachers with pedagogical knowledge provide a nurturing environment where each child can develop according to their potential. MORE INFORMATION & REGISTRATION>

NOTE: Adult/Teen Division open classes and sessions are continuous throughout the year on the same schedule. More information>

As we re-build our programming moving out of the pandemic, we remain committed to equity and inclusiveness, especially for those who are marginalized, and understand that the pandemic has hit some in our community harder than others. We will continue to offer scholarships and find a spot for anyone who wants to dance!

Our organization is a non-profit and our staff are hourly employees. 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. Please consider a DONATION as we work to remain open through rebuilding our enrollment.
