ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Participation in a summer intensive program is an important investment in a student's future. Since its founding in 1955, the Houston Ballet Ben Stevenson Academy has been providing the highest quality ballet training to aspiring dancers. Students will be completely immersed in dance for three to six weeks and will obtain invaluable training that will enrich and complement their previous dance education. Our program provides an opportunity to train in a professional environment and dance for 6 to 8 hours a day, learning from our world-class teachers and Houston Ballet company members.
