Summer Classes

2020 Summer Classes – POSPONED!

Summer Classes and Sessions

Due to COVID-9 we have decided not to post any summer classes at this time. Should things change and we feel classes will be able to meet we will begin to upload classes. Please check back.

Mankato Ballet Company offers summer classes for all ages. We have a fantastic 4 week ballet session for ages 2-9 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 director’s 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.

Summer Dress Code

Dancers attending for summer sessions do NOT need to purchased a class leotard as we will be using the summer to place them for the fall. Our dress code is more lax in the summer, but we do prefer that all dancers taking ballet are in a leotard of some kind, tights and ballet slippers. Hair should be pulled off the face and in a bun for intermediate and advanced classes.

Summer PBT Sessions

PBT is an innovative program developed by Marie Walton-Mahon for students to understand the depth of training muscle memory in achieving their personal best in classical ballet.  These exercises lead the student to the understanding of core stability, weight placement and alignment.  In addition these exercises create profound changes and benefits that can be felt even after the class is over.  And finally it’s fun for everyone.  CLICK HERE for more information and supply list.

For dancers that are not currently MBC students we welcome you to attend our summer programs! If you are trying to determine which one is appropriate for you please contact our office at 507-625-7716 or send an email to and we would be happy to assist you with placing your dancer.
