With the ongoing pandemic, Houston Ballet is providing options for hygienic, smaller student-to-teacher-ratio summer training in-person or all-virtual format. All in-person participants are required to adhere to safety and health guidelines outlined by the CDC and Houston Methodist.

Programming and schedules are subject to change at any time.


Since its founding in 1955, Houston Ballet Academy has provided the highest quality ballet training to aspiring dancers.
