During the summer months we offer a variety of Intensives, Camps and Workshops for all ages and levels of dancers.
PAB will be offering a “hybrid” Classical Ballet Summer Intensive in 2020. All classes will be available for online participation throughout the 7-week summer course which runs from June 15th through July 31st. As soon as Montgomery County is moved into the “green phase” by the governor’s office, we will be adding an option for a limited number of students to take class in the studio, as well. We hope and expect that the in-studio option will become available at the end of June or beginning of July. The exact date is, of course, dependent upon the re-opening plan for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Each day includes 4 classes – Classical Ballet Technique and Pointe every day, Modern/Jazz or Character Repertoire, and Progressing Ballet Technique or Ballet Floorwork.
All online classes are fully interactive – the teacher can see all of the students, give corrections, and answer questions; and the students can see each other, as well, if they choose to.
Additionally, students may further supplement their summer training with extra drop-in classes on Monday and Wednesday afternoons and Friday mornings. All summer session classes are taught by experienced PAB faculty.

Adult Summer Session
PAB will be offering 15 online classes per week open to our Adult students in the 2020 Summer Session. All classes will be available for online participation throughout the 7-week summer course which runs from June 15th through July 31st.
The classes are a mix of Vaganova-method ballet technique classes and conditioning classes (PBT and Ballet Floorwork) for elementary, intermediate, and advanced adult students.
The Ballet Technique classes follow the Vaganova teaching method which focuses on the building blocks of ballet: proper body position, musicality, artistry, and control.
PBT and Ballet Floorwork use fundamental ballet techniques and vocabulary to enhance strength, alignment, flexibility, balance, and control.
Any class that is marked as Drop-in on the Summer 2020 schedule is open to our Adult students.
