Three Days of Immersive Dance Studies

THE PROGRAM

The 2021 Ballet Sun Valley Dance Education Program made a return to in-person instruction. Classes were offered to Intermediate, Advanced/Intermediate, and Advanced dance students. The program took place on July 12, 13, & 14 and along with our Ballet Sun Valley 2021 July Festival.

All classes were taught by artists and faculty from San Francisco Ballet, faculty from Pacific Northwest Ballet School and Pacific Northwest Ballet Artistic Director, Peter Boal. The SFB and PNB School are recognized as two of the top professional ballet schools in the world.

The program included instruction in ballet, pointe, variations and choreography.

All students received a ticket to the performances in the Sun Valley Pavilion on July 12 & 13.

Thanks to the generous support of Ballet Sun Valley sponsors, this incredible opportunity is always offered tuition-free to accepted students. 


The goal of the program is to provide young dancers with the memories, experiences, and inspiration to reach for the next level of dance whether that is a career in dance or a life enriched by the discipline, commitment, graceful movement, healthy exercise, and knowledge of one of the world’s most beautiful art forms.
