BalletMet’s Summer Intensives are specially designed for dancers who are ready to take their technique to the next level. With a robust class offering taught by our roster of distinguished faculty and guest teachers, our Summer Intensive sets dancers up for year-round success.

We offer several different opportunities for Summer Intensives:

New this year, our Classical & Contemporary Partnering Intensive, June 19-24, will focus on the instruction of pas de deux and partnering technique for ballet and contemporary dance forms. Dancers aged 15-20 years old who are accepted into our five-week intensive are welcome in this program. Ladies are required to have advanced pointe technique and men will focus on perfecting their partnering skills. A typical day in the intensive will consist of 1.5 hours of classical ballet technique, ballet pas de deux technique, ballet pas de deux repertoire, and an introduction to contemporary partnering class. Partnering is a fundamental skill which is required in order to become a professional dancer. This intensive will help bring dancers the versatility that dance companies require today.

Students aged 7-12 may choose our Junior Intensive the week of August 7-11.

Our 5-week Summer Intensive is for students aged 12-20 and runs June 26–July 28, 2023.

Students aged 16 and up have the option to enroll in our Company Rep Week, July 30–Aug 4, where they’ll experience the life of a professional dancer including professional company choreography.
