Classes, Camps, Workshops and Intensive
There are many options for summer training at Ballet Virginia. Classes during the weekday evenings and Saturdays much like the academy year plus specialized daytime summer programs. Our programs offer challenging and age-appropriate training in ballet and other dance forms along with performance opportunities.
