Through the vision of Boston Ballet School Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen, and under the leadership of Boston Ballet School Director Margaret Tracey, we inspire, develop, and sustain a love of dance in every student. While excellence in ballet training is crucial to our mission, we believe that our job as arts educators goes well beyond technique. Our philosophy and curriculum support the development of the whole student within a nurturing, educational environment. The breadth and depth of the education we provide, coupled with the expertise and support of our faculty and connection to a world-class company, makes it possible for us to offer unparalleled ballet training and dance education programs of the highest quality for a wide range of students.
Experience Summer at Boston Ballet School
Participating in a summer program is a beneficial way to keep dancing over the summer. For the younger students, it keeps their passion and enthusiasm for ballet alive and gets them excited about the upcoming school year. For the upper-level students, summer training is instrumental in maintaining their technique from one school year to the next, as well as helping students stay in shape over the summer months.
Students who participate in a summer program are more inclined to master the next year’s curriculum with greater ease. Summer programming complements the school-year curriculum. Classes continue to be age and developmentally appropriate while finding new ways to keep students engaged. Boston Ballet School offers a variety of summer programs to suit our student’s abilities.
