Summer is a great time to try different classes, and a great way to stay in shape and keep your technique fine-tuned. Dancers enrolled in our Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap or Modern are strongly encouraged to add Ballet during the summer. Ballet is the basis of all forms of dance. Having a strong technical ballet background increases the quality of the dancer’s technique. BDC offers weekly summer classes in Ballet, Pointe/Variations, Tap, Jazz, Modern, Modern Improvisation, Modern Repertory and Hip Hop.

The Weekly Summer Class Schedule can be found under the Schedule tab then “Weekly Summer Schedule.”
