Whether your child is simply curious about ballet or has dreams of being a prima ballerina, our ballet summer intensive is a beautifully rounded approach to the classic practice of ballet.

Our students will enjoy instruction on the basics of ballet, along with some extra, complementary classes that ensure your little one will be fully immersed in the best ballet instruction New Orleans has to offer.  Ballet infuses children with discipline, a respect for the arts, and a sense of accomplishment that cannot be garnered from any other practice.  If you are curious about what ballet can do for your child, our summer intensive program is the perfect way for both of you to immerse yourselves in the world of classical ballet.
