  This year, we are in two locations, because Purchase College, which was our location for the last 17 years, is renovating the Dance Building. Dancers may attend any session, or combination of sessions.

*Classes are from 9:30am to 3:00pm, on week-days.

*Depending on the number, dancers are streamed into a class by age.

*The same faculty teachers who teach the Summer School of Excellence also teach the Junior Summer Schools.

*There are performances by the dancers in a theater
on campus at the end of each session - July 5, July 17 and August 7 at 2:00pm.

No audition is necessary.
Dancers must have had ballet classes for at least 2 years.
No experience is required for Musical Theater, Spanish or Folk.

The program is filled with enjoyment and fun:

• Ballet Technique

• Performance Awards Ballet

• Musical Theater

• Folk

• Spanish Dance

• This popular program is in its 18h year.

• Dancers enjoy the experience of dancing in the College environment, and the excitement of performing new dances.

• The faculty of six teachers is dancer-friendly, bringing the joy of dance to the young dancers.

• The performance is a wonderful chance for the dancers to show their parents, and friends how they have progressed.
