About the Program
The Summer Program at South Florida Ballet (SFB) is where the professional dancer begins. Our Summer Program is designed for the ballet dancer interested in developing their craft, gaining exposure to other styles of dance, learning about ballet history and culture, and bonding with their classmates in a summer camp environment. Students perform in-studio dances, engage in creative art projects, and attend field trips. Our Summer Program is organized into three groups, the Fairytale Dance Camp for ages 4 -7, the Dance Camp for ages 7 –12, and the Advanced Intensive for ages 12 and up.
Camp begins at 9:00am and ends at 3:00pm Monday -Friday, we offer early care and after care.
