Summer Course at the Francia Russell Center

Student Division Summer Course

July 12 – August 14, 2021

Students enrolled in the Francia Russell Center Summer Course will continue to learn progressive levels of ballet technique in a nurturing and professional environment.

Enrollment in the Francia Russell Center Summer Course is open to all PNB School students currently registered in Levels I-VI in the 2020-21 School Year, and to students who were accepted from Summer auditions in January, 2021.

Classes

The Francia Russell Center Summer Course will offer ballet technique classes three to six days a week for students in Level I-VI. Classes in other forms of dance complement the weekly schedule for Level III-VI, providing students with a rich summer dance experience.

We are currently planning for small, in-person classes for the 2021 Summer Course, following all health and safety guidelines established by PNB’s COVID-19 team (based on state and local health mandates). Limited class sizes (10-12 students per class) allow for personalized instruction while maintaining social distancing and other COVID safety practices and protocol.

 “I really enjoyed PNB School’s summer program. I learned a lot about how I can improve my dancing and take care of my body. The program was a good experience for me. I hope to come back next summer!”
