Long Beach Ballet’s Summer Programs!!

3-Wk Intensive -- 6-Wk Intensive & China Tour

More students are switching from "big name summer programs" to Long Beach Ballet's Intensive! Get the training and attention you deserve in 2020!

3-Week Intensive

This program has been designed to provide a rich, intensive experience of classical training. 

It includes daily classes in ballet technique, pointe, and variations, as well as a sampling of other dance forms to enrich the training of the classical dance student.  These other classes include Russian Character, Pilates, Modern and Contemporary.  Student choreography is also welcomed and encouraged.  In addition, there are special classes in performance preparation, including stage make-up, costume tips, pointe shoe care, etc.  

6-Week Intensive/ China Tour

"An elite program for students looking for life-changing experiences, increased strength, technique, artistry, and a profoundly enhanced view of themselves, of the world, and of life inside a ballet company."

After spending 3 weeks training with us in Long Beach,  we present you with the opportunity to train with the Guangzhou Ballet of China and perform aboard a cruise ship to Japan.
