Junior and Summer Intensive


The safety of our students, faculty, and staff has been our utmost concern as we weighed our options over the last few months. It is with this in mind we should note that BalletMet will be moving to a hybrid program for the Summer Intensive.

Our 2020 program will consist of both limited group in studio experiences as well as virtual experiences. Please be patient as we determine employee and student health, how to comply with social distancing recommendations, how to sanitize our building and equipment, and how to build a culture of concern for the health of others. Our plans to address student and employee safety will be updated and distributed over the next few weeks.

Please note: BalletMet leadership has made the difficult decision to cancel our Residential/Dorm option for our Summer Intensive and Company Rep Week programs. Students who are able to arrange for their own housing and follow any quarantine regulations that are set by our state are welcome to join us.

Junior Intensive has been moved from early June to August, please contact us with concerns.
