The Colburn School is excited to offer a one-week summer ballet intensive program that is designed to provide students with a bridge to connect the end of their year-round training and the start of their longer summer training courses.

Students will also be given an experience of the year-round training in Colburn’s Dance Academy, a rigorous highly personalized pre-professional ballet program that prepares dancers for their individual aspirations by honoring the great traditions of classical ballet and embracing the new and contemporary.

Classes will include but are not limited to ballet technique, contemporary, partnering, conditioning, and exploring approaches to artistic perspectives through conversations and various repertoire.


The Colburn School’s downtown Los Angeles location offers access to some of the best venues, art installations, and dining experiences in the country. During the intensive, you can explore all that LA’s cultural center has to offer, and even stay on campus in Colburn’s dorms.
