Come dance with us!

Summer Study weeks offer serious dance students, a highly concentrated curriculum in classical ballet and modern training with accomplished faculty.

Summer is traditionally a time to work intensively in developing technique and artistry. Students come to class during the day when they are not as tired from everyday activities, including school and can focus entirely on their training.

At St. Paul Ballet, we have created summer courses that work in conjunction with traveling for intensive programs in other cities and family summer events.

The Summer Study program was created to continue 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.

Dive in with our stellar staff accompanied by live musicians to gain strength, flexibility and learn techniques that reflect the diversity and range required by major dance companies.

Summer Study is offered in in our three spacious, air-conditioned studios with Two-week courses, Single-Weeks and Prep-Weeks for flexibility. 

It is our passion to develop students for success as artists physically and emotionally. Each student is supported,
nurtured and given the tools to express their love of dance!

Find your own voice.
Show your best self.
Blur the line between class and performance.
