The summer intensive is a one, two, or three-week comprehensive program for students and professionals. Lexington Ballet offers both a Junior and Advanced Program. Focus is on classical ballet technique and complementary dance and fitness to challenge each student's potential. Led by School Director Nancy Dominguez, the summer intensive provides exemplary instruction in a safe and nurturing environment. Lexington Ballet studios are located in the heart of downtown Lexington in the midst of restaurants, hotels, galleries, and boutiques.
Advanced Program is a full-day schedule for intermediate/advanced students and professionals. Students should bring a water bottle, a sack lunch, and a yoga/pilates mat.
New students are invited to attend a free Lexington Ballet class for placement. If your dancer is unable to attend a class for level placement, please send a short informal video doing some barre work (plies, battement tendu, rond de jambe and Grand Battement). Use the Request Info button on the left to send an email.
