Summer 2022! will find Pontecorvo Ballet Studios dancing all summer long!
This summer at PBS will follow its usual split schedule
.First, evening classes for all levels will run Monday through Thursday for six weeks starting Wednesday July 5 through August 10. Advanced dancers are encouraged to attend 2-3 times per week. Special Summer Class Cards are available for these classes ($60 for a 5-class card for Ballet for Beginners and Introduction to Ballet, and $150 for a 10-class card for all others; click here to purchase ) so that dancers can attend when they can and not have to make up or worry about missing class. No sign-up is required; dancers may attend any class appropriate to their age and experience level. If a Summer Class Card is not used up this summer, then the balance can be applied to fall tuition or used next summer. (Adults may use existing Adult Class Cards.) Click here for the daily schedule. If you are new to PBS, please register.
Second, PBS will hold a one-week full day summer intensive course for intermediate and advanced dancers age 10 and older, August 7-11. This Intensive is extremely valuable for young dancers looking to increase stamina, strength and vocabulary. Peter LeBreton Merz will be returning as guest teacher along side PBS faculty. Private classes will also be available during that week. The schedule will include Ballet, Pointe, Specialty Class, Repertory Class and a stretch class, with a performance at the end of the week. Tuition for the week is $400, and registration is required. There is a $20 per student non-refundable registration fee, which will be applied to tuition if you register in advance of the first class.

Summer study is extremely important for young dancers. Ballet technique is a matter of muscle memory and conditioning, and when a dancer stops for the summer months, much of that muscle memory and conditioning is lost. Even for young dancers, the momentum is lost. This PBS summer schedule gives dancers an easy, ﬂexible way to build and maintain their artistry.
