Summer Classes, Camps and Intensives

Join us at Slavin Nadal School of Ballet for your summer training. You will experience quality instruction in classical ballet technique from highly experienced faculty who are committed to bringing the finest aspects of artistry and athleticism to their classes. With a foundation in Russian technique, we aim to refine your skills with the many movement qualities that are necessary for the development of strong and expressive dancers.

Summer intensives can facilitate periods of rapid personal growth, unveil new discoveries, and create valuable connections in the dance community.

Our Summer Camps offer young children an introduction to the joys of dance as a creative and expressive art form. Parents will appreciate a summertime childcare option that provides their children with an enriching and active experience.

Our Summer Sessions allow youth and adult students to continue their regular classes outside of our Fall and Spring semester schedules. Stay in shape this summer with classes at Slavin Nadal!
