Summer 2019 with Huntsville Ballet School

Continuing your training during the summer months is a great way to maintain and hone your skills, as well as stay in ballet shape.  Huntsville Ballet School offers something for every level of ballet student. Our Intensives offer the intermediate and advanced dancer the opportunity to stay in shape and continue training, with weeks scheduled before and after to summer ballet programs around the state and country.  Mini Intensives are a shorter version of the Intensive to introduce the younger dancer to a multiple class day. HBS also offers a Student Session of weekly scheduled classes throughout the summer. With both daytime and evening options, we are certain you will find classes for your young ballerina.
