Young Dancer Summer Workshop
This workshop provides the opportunity for serious young dancers (ages 9-11 & 12 year-olds at the beginning pointe level) to flourish in a professional yet nurturing environment. The outstanding faculty members of ABT will provide unparalleled instruction while remaining sensitive to the developmental needs of younger dancers.
The Young Dancer Summer Workshop will focus on building a solid foundation in ballet technique and educating younger dancers about related topics in the world of dance.
