Summer Classes – Registration is OPEN!
June and July Classes
Mankato Ballet Company offers summer classes for all ages. We are offering a NEW set of dance camps. Miss Abby will be teaching a Jazz Camp and Mr. Riley will be teaching a Ballet Camp. It’s a great way to start off you summer! We have a fantastic 4 week session for ages 2 and up starting in July. It is a great way for new students to get introduced to dance in a short session and a wonderful way for current student to keep current on their technique.
Current MBC students should enroll for the level they have been in this past fall. New students should enroll based on the age recommendations or contact the school to get the directors recommendation. There is no registration fee for summer classes. Tuition is due by the first week of classes. We encourage everyone to pre-register because classes tend to fill quickly. There is a cap on each class size to ensure placement for a summer class register early!
