Unfortunately, we are no longer able to offer housing for Ballet Workshop. This decision has been made in conjunction with our residential partners at Salem State University and with the safety of our staff and students top of mind.

While we cannot offer our residential component, the North Shore Studio will still run a commuter-only Ballet Workshop program July 13–24. All students who were planning on residing at Salem State have the option of attending the program as a commuter. With student health and safety in mind, modifications will be made to class sizes and curriculum in accordance with governmental recommendations and regulations at the time of the program.

If you cannot attend Ballet Workshop in the North Shore ​as a commuter, you have the option to directly transfer your tuition to Boston or Newton's Ballet Workshop (Aug 3–14) and be refunded for all housing fees paid to date. If you can no longer attend the program, you may withdraw and receive a full refund of fees paid to date. Please contact with any questions.
