On January 27, 2019,  we will be hosting auditions for our 2019 Summer Dance Intensives. These workshops will be an opportunity for pre-professional dance students to train with our accomplished faculty and acclaimed guest artists.

At St. Paul Ballet each student’s individual development is supported through our nurturing environment. It is our passion to develop students for success in performing their best as artists physically and emotionally. Students will learn techniques that reflect the diversity and range required by major American ballet companies today.
