As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, Houston Ballet Academy will offer 2020 summer programming online.  All summer classes will be delivered LIVE via Zoom. Learn more about each program below.


Since its founding in 1955, the Houston Ballet Academy has provided the highest quality ballet training to aspiring dancers. During the summer, students will obtain training that will enrich and complement their previous dance education. Students not currently enrolled in the Pre-professional (Level 1 – Advanced) or Professional Program (Pro 1, Pro 2, HBII) at Houston Ballet Academy must audition for acceptance into the program. Note: Summer levels do not align with our Fall/Spring Levels. Preschool programs and Children’s Workshops are open enrollment and no audition is necessary.
