Fun and creative activities focusing on the arts
For girls ages 3 to 8
Ballet Academy East’s Summerdance is a fun-filled summer program for girls ages 3 to 8. Designed to foster imagination and inspire a love of the arts, the curriculum includes dance, art, drama, cooking, swimming (ages 4-8), and more. Our classes are led by gifted instructors who specialize in teaching young children. There will be a short in-studio showing for each group at the end of weeks 4 and 8. Students may enroll in Summerdance for either four or eight weeks, or customize their own schedule.
Early Drop-Off: The BAE counselors will supervise children in fun activities beginning at 8:15am until the start of the Summerdance day.

Performing Arts: Ballet, modern, tap, and jazz focus on developing young dancers’ strength, flexibility, and musicality, while instilling a love and appreciation of dance. Drama, singing, and musical theater provide fun opportunities to develop each child’s creative skills.
Arts & Crafts: Summerdance students explore their unique creativity through decoupage, painting, dioramas, papier-mache, collage making, and more. Art classes take place downstairs at The Craft Studio and are overseen by their very talented and joyful staff.
Cooking: Students whip up delicious, age-appropriate recipes while learning essential cooking skills like measuring and following instructions. Our fully equipped kitchen can be found in our building’s party room, located just around the corner on 92nd Street.
