BALLET SUMMER CAMP
Continue your ballet training through the summer with some serious fun! Each morning will focus on a ballet class with an SF Ballet School faculty member to help students maintain their focused training over the summer break. Ballet technique will be supplemented with a stretch and strength class involving floor-based barre and Pilates exercises. Students will have a break for a brown-bag lunch and transition into camp activities designed to enhance their ballet education: design a ballet story set diorama or make your traditional Swan Lake headpiece. Repertory classes will include choreography from the children’s roles in SF Ballet's story ballet productions. The day will cap off with a chance to let your hair down; each week, students will be exposed to a different style of dance that is highlighted in San Francisco Ballet productions. Sign up for one or more week-long camps in July. 

Ages
Students should be 8–11 years old by July 2017 and have some ballet experience. No audition required.
