Ballet Ireland’s 15th Annual Summer School

Our hugely popular summer school, gives aspiring performers a taste for all that goes into making a ballet and a peak into the life of a professional dancer.  Together with the dancers, the young performers play an important role in the creation of their own full length ballet which is performed on stage at the end of the week for family and friends to come and enjoy. 

The programme is suitable for ages 6+ with or without dance training. Participants are divided into groups, with the seniors in the morning (11am-1pm) and juniors in the afternoon (2-4pm).
