Utah Ballet Summer Intensive

 Balletflyeronline 01


In keeping the recent decision by the University of Utah to move all summer classes online due to COVID 19, the School of Dance has decided to hold the Utah Ballet Summer Intensive online. We will offer 4 weeks of rigorous training embedded in the supportive community we all recognize as a trademark of our summer intensive. For students uninterested or unable to participate in an online intensive, payment will be refunded.
