Summer School

Let’s Make a Ballet!
Calling all budding performers!

Ballet Ireland’s popular summer school returns to theatres around the country in 2018. This much-loved programme gives participants a chance to experience all that goes into making a ballet and a peek into the life of a professional dancer.

Working alongside Ballet Ireland’s professional dancers, participants will be completely involved in creating their own ballet based on a familiar story that is performed on stage at the end of the week for family and friends to come and enjoy.

The week-long programme involves daily class and numerous workshops exploring all the component parts that make ballet; choreography, music, mime, drama and making props and costumes. It is a truly unforgettable experience for all involved.

‘When I went to sleep I dreamt I was back on stage. I loved it. When can I do it again?’ – 2016 Summer School Participant


The programme is suitable for boys and girls aged 6+ with/without prior dance training.

Times: Mon – Fri, 11am-1pm for the Seniors (ages 12+); 2-4pm for the Juniors (ages 6-11).*
Please note: Seniors are required all day on Thursday and Friday. Juniors attend both morning and afternoon sessions on Friday ahead of the performance at 4pm.
