A Note About Our 2021 5-Week Summer Ballet Program
CPYB’s intent for summer of 2021 is to offer a limited number of students an in-person 5-Week Summer Ballet Program or a virtual program that allows students to attend as few as one week of classes, up to the full five week program offering.
We are preparing to operate our in-person program with rigorous health and safety guidelines in place.
Our plans will continue to evolve in the coming months and are dependent upon updates to public health policies. Please continue to check back as updates will be made according to the latest available information and CDC requirements. CPYB is excited to help you advance your training this coming summer!
Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet’s 5-Week Summer Ballet Program provides unparalleled training by our prestigious faculty and guest faculty. As a summer student, you will experience a program focused on advancing your strength and technique using the proven Teaching Syllabus© of our founder, Marcia Dale Weary. Build your confidence as a dancer through our comprehensive curriculum that brings together the finest in technique and artistry. Supplemental classes have included character, pointe, variations, modern, partnering, jazz, and hip-hop.
A limited number of students will be accepted into either a full five week in-person program, or a virtual program that will allow students to attend as few as one week of classes, up to the full five week virtual program.
