COVID-19 STATEMENT

AS OF May 12, 2020:
 

An updated and exciting schedule has been announced in response to Covid-19 including our original guest faculty. Until further notice or deemed safe by St. Louis County, Saint Louis Ballet's summer program will be taught using the zoom platform.  When and if we have clearance to safely teach at our Chesterfield Studios we will shift our schedule to teach in person. 

 

Please note that as one of the first studios to launch zoom classes back in mid-March you are assured a professional and interactive experience as a zoom student.  Monitored also for safety by our staff members we have developed techniques while teaching on the zoom platform that we know will benefit every dancer enrolled. 
 

Registration is now open.  If you have already registered please contact us at 636-537-1998 to make adjustments to your registration if needed.

Saint Louis Ballet’s four week summer intensive program for Advanced and Intermediate level dancers offers the most complete program in the metro area with a variety of dance genres while standing on the principle that ballet is the foundation for success in the areas of dance. This revised program offers ballet technique with pointe work, a lunch break and an afternoon genre class. 
Classes offered: ballet, pointe, variations, jazz, contemporary, ballroom, pilates, and musical theater (genres will vary by week)

The Junior Program, a four week program, offers a daily ballet technique class to teach and anchor student's skills in ballet.  The ballet class is followed immediately by a second class of another genre to enhance their dance experience and broaden their education.
Classes offered: ballet, variations, jazz, musical theater and modern (genres may vary by week)
