School Year Program
Students enrolling in Boston Ballet School’s School Year Program attend classes, September through June. Curriculum includes technique, pointe, variations and separate men’s classes, as well as modern, character and pilates. Through career preparation and professional development seminars, students are mentored in their next steps in a dance career or higher education.
Upper-level students may have opportunities to perform with Boston Ballet’s Company, and all students perform at the Year End Showcase in May. Customized academic and residential options are available through Boston-area academic schools and residencies.
Boston Ballet School offers a summer intensive training program in classical ballet with a comprehensive curriculum designed for the serious ballet student. Curriculum is based on age and level of development.
