Summer: Intro to Ballet ages 9-13

Everybody can dance!

These classes are for dancers who are ages 9-13 who have little to no ballet experience. Classes will cover the basics of ballet, will repeat curriculum often, and are designed to give children/young teens the experience of ballet training. This class is also optimal cross-training for those who also study complimentary arts, such as theater, circus, Irish dance, gymnastics, figure skating or other sports.

NOTE: If you took Intro to Ballet for 7-8 year-olds during the school year please take Beginning Ballet 1 for summer

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

        COVID PRECAUTIONS under MN Dept. of Health Guidelines as of March 2022:

        Class sizes:

        • In-studio class size is now 100% capacity
        • All classes will require pre-registration and payment online, no drop-in classes
        • Due to class size restrictions, pre-registered/reserved spaces must be paid for at the time of registration
        • There is a no refund policy for ‘no show’, if a class spot is booked but not cancelled one hour before the class begins.

        Overall disinfecting of space/ studios:

        • Studio floors are disinfected with Stagestep Disinfectant Cleaner. ProCleanTM D No-Rinse is a one-step “hospital strength” disinfectant and cleaner that is effective against a broad-spectrum of bacteria and viruses, including Covid 19, and inhibits the growth of mold and mildew
        • HVAC and Ventilation: Our HVAC was brand new in Fall 2019 and is up to current building code. The units on average exchange the air in our spaces at least 3-4 times per hour. If the outside temperatures do not vary more than a few degrees from inside temps, exchange can be as much as 10x per hour. Our 22’ ceilings and large floor area give our studios a large cubic volume and air flow is directed across the ceilings and drops down the walls to avoid creating a draft affect. This is important as it directs the airflow away from people which can increase aerosols from individuals spreading to others.
        • All barres, doorknobs and light switches will be wiped down with disinfectant regularly.

        Bathroom Cleaning:

        • Foot pulls have been installed on the bathroom doors so they can be opened without hand touching
        • Bathrooms are cleaned each day M-F.

          Washing Hands/ Hand Sanitizer:

          • We encourage hand washing, or using hand sanitizer when entering and leaving the space
          • Hand sanitizer can be found in multiple locations around the facility including in each studio

          At SPB, we will be doing our part to watch and remind everyone who enters the space of the policies we have set in place.  The health and well-being of our community is of the upmost importance.
