SUMMER 2021 BALLET INTENSIVES JUNE 28-JULY 30

Grand Rapids Ballet School currently plans to hold an in-person, five-week Summer Intensive with the opportunity for students to also study virtually. CDC guidelines and state regulations will most likely continue to mandate smaller class sizes, mandatory mask wearing, and social distancing, so we will have rigorous health and safety guidelines in place, as we have been since our reopening in September 2020.

More specific information regarding scheduling, pricing, curriculum, and guest faculty will be released in the coming months. Of course our plans will continue to evolve as we monitor the current state of the pandemic. All programs are subject to change.

Due to circumstances surrounding COVID-19, housing will not be available for our 2021 Summer Ballet Intensives attendees as the safety and health of our students and staff remains our top priority.

June 28-July 30, 2021
