BalletMet Summer Intensive

About our Program

BalletMet Dance Academy’s Summer Intensive invites professionally aspiring dancers to a five-week program at our studios in Columbus, Ohio, named one of the top six cities in the country for the arts. Summer Intensive students 16+ can also choose to add our BalletMet Company Rep Week where they will learn choreography from today’s top choreographers, in a company style format, taught by the ballet masters and artistic director of BalletMet.

Due to COVID-19 we are currently planning a hybrid program featuring both in-studio and virtual classes, please note this is subject to change.  At this time, we have not decided whether we will have dorms available or if students will need to secure their own housing.  We will update this page and advise as decisions are made.
