American Ballet Academy is committed to giving dancers the opportunity to dance year-round.  We understand that busy summer months make it hard to commit to a regular weekly schedule.  To accommodate, we offer classes on punch card as opposed to monthly tuition, and have a week “intensive” for all the different levels.  Dancers and families can commit to as much or as little as they wish, with the flexible drop-in schedule.

Summer is a wonderful time to train.  As we are not working toward a special event, teachers can focus on technique.  To help dancers and parents discover the benefits of continuing training over the summer, ABA offers the “Ballet I special” – dancers receive a 12 class punch card for the price of 6.  Whereas we know people may not be able to commit to the level of training they have during the school year, we discourage students in pre-pointe/Ballet III and above from taking the entire summer off dancing as it leads to greater chance of injury.

I hope you choose to dance the summer of 2017! We operate on punch cards for the month of July and August – you can come to any class of your level as your schedule allows. Come 3 times one week, and not at all the next. A six class punch card can be purchased for $80. A twelve class punch card is $132. Ballet I Special! Ballet I students: you will receive a 12 class punch card when you purchase a 6 class card! I hope you take advantage of this wonderful offer; even if you only make 9 classes you are getting a great deal. Remember: We have air conditioning!

Classes will be held July 5 – August 17. The studio will be closed August 19 – September 6. The fall schedule starts September 7.
