We wrap up this exhilarating season with a time-travel to the 1960s in San Francisco with Be Here Now at Peter Martin Wege Theatre.

Grand Rapids Ballet School is bringing back our popular Summer Dance Camps, made especially for young dancers. Our ballet camps are a fun way for your child to stay active, meet new friends, and learn the fundamentals of ballet during summer break.

For children ages 3-6, our 75-minute ballet camp will teach your little one the fundamentals of etiquette, coordination, and musicality in an interactive environment where they will learn the beginning elements of creative movement. Students also set a goal to achieve by the end of the week and have the discipline to achieve it.

For children ages 6.5-10, our two-hour ballet camp provides the exciting creative spark they need to fuel their passion for dance. The curriculum builds a strong dance foundation focused on correct posture, placement, discipline, coordination, strength, flexibility, and the basic vocabulary of ballet.

Grand Rapids Ballet School’s 2024 Summer Camps end with an in-studio showcase at the Meijer-Royce Center For Dance so parents can watch their little one’s hard work pay off. 2024 Summer Dance Camps are not only an excellent way for children to get their energy out – but it’s also a great workout for both their mind AND their body!


Grand Rapids Ballet School’s Summer 2024 Intensives include a Ballet Intensive program, a Contemporary Intensive program, and Dance Camps for young dancers. During the Ballet and Contemporary programs, students participate in daily classes with our renowned faculty and enjoy a comprehensive curriculum that includes exposure to GRB Company dancers and guest faculty. Our Dance Camps are a fun way for your child to stay active, meet new friends, and learn the fundamentals of ballet during summer break.
