2024 Junior Intensives

Summer is the perfect time to sharpen your skills and foster your love of ballet. The Project Ballet junior intensive is a time for young ballet aspirants to explore a more structured and formal approach to ballet training.

Three weeks, enroll by-the-week:

June 10-13 from 5:30-6:45pm

July 8-11 from 5:30-6:45pm

July 22-25 from 5:30-6:45pm



The Project Ballet Junior Intensive is an evening 4-day camp for serious young dancers who are interested in continuing their training throughout the summer months. Dancers will improve their technique through the daily study of ballet technique, supplemented by contemporary dance classes, strength/conditioning classes, and the study of ballet history/repertory.



There are three weeks to select from: June 10-13, July 8-11 and July 22-25. Class meets from 5:30-6:45pm Monday-Thursday each week. Students enroll by the week. Students should arrive a few minutes early so that class can start promptly at 5:30pm. 



The Project Ballet Junior Intensive is $125 per week. Currently enrolled PB dancers may use a discount code to receive $20 off their enrollment, per week, if they enroll by April 1, 2024. A minimum $50 deposit is due a registration. Payment plan options will be available at check-out. Tuition is non-refundable. Tuition cannot be transferred, except in the case of documented illness or injury documented by a doctor's note. If a doctor's note is produced by 4:00pm on the Thursday prior to the Monday of the intensive week starting, then summer intensive tuition can be transferred into account credit to be used for future classes. Otherwise, tuition is forfeited.


Enrollment Eligibility

Project Ballet students who have been placed in Training Program Level 1 for the 2024-2025 school year are eligible for the Junior Intensive. Guest dancers with an equivalent level of training would generally be 6-10 years old with at least two years of experience with serious ballet instruction. However, at Project Ballet, level placement is based on skill competency, rather than age, so this age range is meant as a guideline, not a restriction. Guest dancers will need to reach out to our Artistic Director, Beth McLeish, to schedule a level placement evaluation, prior to enrolling:


Students must pay for the entire week, however students will be permitted to miss days/partial days if they are ill, injured, have a schedule conflict, etc. Please make sure to communicate your absence to the front desk via an ABSENTEE FORM. Please note that Project Ballet students have a minimum attendance requirement that must be met, and if absence prevents them from meeting this requirement, they will be required to enroll in an equivalent course of private lessons. See the section below, entitled "Summer Attendance Requirement".


Summer Attendance Requirement

Project Ballet students placed in Level 1 for the 2024-2025 school year must attend a minimum of one of the Junior Intensive to fulfill our summer attendance requirement. Dancers who fail to meet this requirement, due to schedule conflicts, illness, injury, etc. will be required to complete an equivalent course of one private lesson per day missed, up to a total of four private lessons, at an additional cost.
