2024 Summer Youth Ballet Programs & Camps

OBT School is excited to continue our Junior Intensive and summer session of Primary Ballet. In addition to our typical offerings, we are thrilled to introduce Summer Camps! Our Summer Youth Ballet Programs give students 7 years and older an opportunity to continue their ballet training with OBT’s professional faculty. Young dancers experience the joys of ballet and unique elective classes during a concentrated time frame to help them prepare for their lifelong ballet journey.

Summer Primary Ballet is open to students age 7 and Junior Intensive ages 8+. We also offer Pre-Ballet for ages 3-6 and Adult Ballet for ages 15+ during the summer!

Students enrolled in our Annual Session may register for a summer program based on their current level placement.

This intensive is designed for young dancers ages 8 and up who are eager to immerse themselves in dance and take their ballet training to the next level. Each day will include ballet technique classes to develop strong foundations and facilitate a deeper understanding of the art form. Students will also participate in supplemental classes that may include ballet repertory, pointe (Level 3), theater performance, Irish dance, jazz, flamenco, hip hop, contemporary dance, improvisation, and more!

Level 1 is open to dancers 8 years and older with 0-2 years of ballet training. Level 2 is open to dancers 9 years and older with 2 or more years of consistent ballet training. Level 3 is open to dancers 11 years and older with 3 or more years of consistent ballet training. OBT School students register based on their current level placement.

During the Junior Intensive, Level 3 students who are ready for pointe can work more effectively to gain foundational beginning pointe strength. Participation on pointe is at the discretion of the School Director. Pre-pointe will be offered to those Level 3 students needing to work on strength building.
