Tips for Creating a Successful Summer Dance Program
Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet (CPYB) believes in promoting ballet anywhere and everywhere. We’ve been hosting successful summer dance intensives for years at our home base in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

Crafting a beginner ballet class lesson plan can help to streamline the process of developing the entire course for your students from start to finish.
