Our dancers enjoy days filled with dance classes to live music, costume decorating, and acting out classic ballet and children's stories.

Each camp session focuses on a different theme. Some of our favorites include Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty! Ballet Chicago's Children's Theme Camp strikes the perfect balance between structure and creativity.

Junior Intensive (ages 7-12)
We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to develop their technical abilities and explore their creativity.

Ballet Chicago's Junior Intensive Program provides students the foundation necessary to excel in both areas.

We inspire them to cultivate beautiful posture, teach them how to combine purity of form with individual expressiveness, and show them how to increase focus for their minds and their bodies.

Both in the classroom and in performance, Ballet Chicago builds technique, artistry, awareness and self- confidence.

The Junior Intensive curriculum includes Ballet Technique, Repertoire, Modern Dance, and Classical Spanish Dance, Body Conditioning and Stretch classes.

Two class levels are available; placement is based on age, amount of training, and level of advancement. Additionally, Pointe and Pre-Pointe classes are available for those enrolled in Level B.
