Oregon Ballet Theatre School’s summer programs offer a joyful introduction to the world of dance for children ages 3 –  13 and include pre-ballet classes, junior intensives, pre-pointe workshops, and boys’ programs.

  • Pre-ballet classes for children ages 3 -7 focus on movement exploration, story telling, coordination, listening skills, and musicality. Students will also be introduced to the basic elements of classical dance in a fun and nurturing environment. No prior training is necessary.
  • Junior intensives for children ages 8-11 meet daily for two weeks and begin with a 90 minute ballet class. Students will also experience classes in other dance forms as well as workshops that fuel creativity, expression, and imagination through improvisation. The intensives culminate in an informal, in studio showing for parents on the last day of the each session.
  • The Pointe workshops and Boys’ Program support the development of more advanced dancers ages 13 and older.

OBT School summer programs run from June 29 – August 6 at two locations in Portland and West Linn. Click HERE for schedule, pricing, and registration. We look forward to dancing with you this summer!
