Back to Ballet “Boot Camp”

Our Back to Ballet Boot Camp, directed by faculty members Kathy Stark and Joseph Jefferies, is a one-week intensive program designed to polish dancers’ technique and return them in top form to their fall programs. For students who attended an intensive program earlier in the summer, the boot camp will allow you to maintain and show off your summer progress. For those dancers who may have focused on other pursuits this summer, the program will allow you to return to Fall ballet with confidence. Open to both ASB and non-ASB students. Click here for further details.

Drop-in Classes

Our morning Adult Ballet II/III classes continue to meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10:30 a.m. - noon, through the end of July. We also will be holding evening open ballet classes for intermediate and advanced levels during the month of August. Check back for detailed times.
