JUNE 19 - JULY 28, 2017

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. Students dance for six to eight hours a day, six days per week, learning from our world-class instructors and Houston Ballet company members.

All noncurrent students must audition for acceptance into our Summer Intensive programs. Audition Tour dates and locations can be found on our Audition Tour Page. Level 5 students have the option of attending the six-week program or a three-week session, June 19 - July 8, 2017. Levels 6-8 must attend the full six-week program.


June 5 - JUNE 16, 2017

Current students attend the two-week program in their 2016-2017 level. Noncurrent students may audition for the Level 1-4 summer intensive in Houston in January or February. Please see the Audition Tour page for more information. Preschool classes are open enrollment: first come, first serve..


AUGUST 15 - AUGUST 19, 2016
