Beginning Ballet

For aspiring dancers ages 6+. Application and tuition information for 2021 coming soon.

A Note About Our 2021 Beginning Ballet Program

​​CPYB’s intent for summer of 2021 is to offer a limited number of students an in-person Beginning Ballet Program. 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!

Inspiring a Love for Ballet

Beginning Ballet Level A is designed for students age 6+ who have zero to one year of training (not including preschool classes). Students learn the basic ballet positions, the progression of a standard ballet barre, and learning the French vocabulary that defines all the steps in ballet. These students also move into beginning center work, away from the support of the ballet barre. Level A students are required to take five classes per week but may take up to 10 classes a week if desired.

Save the Date: June 21 – July 23, 2021
Classes are held at CPYB Barn Studios, 107 Meeting House Road, Carlisle, PA.
