Summer Classes

VIRTUAL Summer Classes

Due to COVID-19 we have decided not to offer in-studio summer classes at this time. If able, we will add some at a later date.  We will email everyone those options when and if we can offer them.

Until then, we have some virtual options for you! You will need to have the Band App to take them. If you need to download it CLICK HERE. You can also download it on your mobile device. Some classes may also use a Zoom link, no download needed and the link would be provided in your Band ap.

CLICK HERE to learn about our MBC Family Tree Campaign.  It includes access to our summer classes, waived fall registration fees, and many other benefits.

Virtual Summer Classes and Sessions

Virtual classes with specific themes and skills will be offered throughout the summer.  Each class will run for 4 days and have different resource and activities.  The time listed with the class is the virtual class portion when the dancer should log into BAND.

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 info@mankatoballet.org and we would be happy to assist you with placing your dancer.

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.
