The University of Utah Ballet Summer Intensive is known for its stellar faculty, mentoring atmosphere, and small class sizes. Most recently this program was only available to students 15 years old and older.

New this year is our Junior Utah Ballet Summer Intensive.

This program is designed with the unique needs of 13-14 year olds in mind. Dancers in this age group often reach a turning point in their dance education. They are ready to learn new repertoire but also need solid, core technique focus. Our program is staffed with teachers professionally trained keenly aware of the training challenges for this age group. With small class sizes, teachers have a vested interest in each dancer’s growth. This is a chance for your dancer to have University quality instructors in a nurturing, yet disciplined environment.  Join us this summer!
