Summer Program 2022

The School of the Albany Berkshire Ballet’s Summer Dance Program includes classes for all levels. We offer Dance Camps, Intensives, and Weekly Classes. Dance Camps are for children ages 4-9. They include a themed ballet class, learning a dance, and a craft. Intensives are week-long concentrated programs for aspiring intermediate and advanced dancers ages 10 and up to study ballet, pointe, and repertory. Weekly Classes give new dancers an opportunity to begin and current dancers the chance to continue their training through the summer.
