We offer 4-Day Camps, 5-Day Intensives and Evening Classes each July & August. Check our ENROLL page for a listing of current classes.
Participation in summer programs is advised for all students preparing for, or dancing in, pointe shoes. Students dancing in pointe shoes are expected to enroll in 2-3 weeks of BSVT Summer Intensives to maintain their technique and strength year-round. Weekly class enrollment is also advised when offered. Pointe students who are considering off-campus ballet programs which conflict with BSVT Summer Intensive dates need approval from the Director. Exceptions for health, travel or individual family situations can be requested. Beginner pointe shoe dancers will be re-evaluated in the fall when they have not been in class for three months to ensure proper strength and placement are in place before given the approval to dance en pointe.
