The School of Greensboro Ballet's Summer schedule of classes, camps and sessions is usually announced in early February of each year, so be sure to check back then for more information! Here are examples of previous years' offerings.
Summer at the School of Greensboro Ballet
Spend a day, a week or all summer with us at the School of Greensboro Ballet. We are offering a full summer of dance opportunities: Children’s Dance Camps for ages 3-6, Dancers & Dolls Camp for girls ages 7-11, our BOYS ONLY CAMP, a Young Dancers Workshop, an EMF Intensive and lots of Open Classes for advanced ballet dancers. No matter your age, ability or schedule…we hope you’ll come dance your summer away with us!
Children's Dance Camps for ages 3-6
These camps include dance, crafts, snack time and fun tied into a different weekly theme. Last year's themes included: Princess, Flowers & Fairies, Ballerinas, Nutcracker, My Favorite Doll, Little Pets & Ponies, etc. These camps normally run from either 9am-Noon or 1-4pm, Monday-Fridays with a special showing for parents/friends on the last day of each week.
Last year we also had a BOYS ONLY CAMP for boys ages 5-9! This fun and high-energy camp gave each boy the freedom to JUMP over tall buildings, RUN faster than a speeding bullet, and well, you get the idea. This camp ran from 1-4pm in the afternoon for one week during the summer.
Dancers & Dolls Camp for ages 7-11
Bring your favorite doll with you to this half-day, week-long summer camp full of dance, play, crafts, field trips, parties and more! We pack so much into this camp one camp, it is like getting two camps for the price of one! Last year's theme was Four Seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall and a New Year's celebration.
Summer Intensives for ages 11 & up
Each summer the School of Greensboro Ballet offers various intensive training opportunities for Intermediate and Advanced level students. These very reasonably priced intensives offer classes in ballet and pointe/pre-pointe, as well as various other techniques which have included Contemporary/Modern, African Dance, Character, Variations, Jazz, Pilates and more. Often times our professional dancers will teach some of these classes. We are also thrilled to have special Guest Faculty teach during these sessions. In the past, Guest Faculty have included:
Thom Clower - Anna-Marie Holmes - Elizabeth Sykes - Summer Broyhill - Emory LeCrone - and many more!
Past summer intensives have included: Greensboro Ballet's Summer Festival, Eastern Music Festival/Greensboro Ballet Summer Intensive, Summer Ballet Boot-Camp and more.
Various open ballet classes are held for elementary, intermediate and advanced level students throughout the summer months. Each class lasts approximately 1-1.5 hours and are held Monday-Thursday in the late afternoon/evenings. Sign up for one class, an entire session or anything in between. Class prices usually run from $9-$12/class, $32-$40/session or $55-$110 for Class Cards (with 5-10 classes per card). These Open Classes are a flexible and easy way to maintain training during the summer months and/or a wonderful way to "try out" our classes when trying to decide about registering for the regular school year.
