Summer Intensive Program


LEVEL 5-8 six week program:

Join us for our Summer Intensive as we continue our strong tradition of superb training and educational programming! All noncurrent students must audition for acceptance into our Summer Intensive Programs (Levels 1-8).

Since its founding in 1955, the Houston Ballet Academy has provided the highest quality ballet training to aspiring dancers. Students will be completely immersed in dance for three or six weeks and will obtain training that will enrich and complement their previous dance education.
