Summer School

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

Ballet Ireland’s popular summer school is back in theatres around the country this July & August. This fabulous programme gives young people a chance to experience what it might be like to be in a ballet company put on a ballet and live the life of a professional dancer for a week.

Students will be dancing with Ballet Ireland’s professional dancers, and completely immersed in creating their own ballet that is performed on stage at the end of the week for family and friends to come and enjoy.

The week involves daily class and then the fun of exploring all the things that make ballet; choreography, music, mime, drama and making props & costumes. It is a truly unforgettable experience for all involved.
