Fun and creative activities focusing on the arts

For girls ages 3 to 9

Ballet Academy East’s Summerdance is a fun-filled summer program for girls ages 3 to 9. Designed to foster imagination and inspire a love of the arts, the curriculum includes dance, art, drama, cooking, swimming, and more. Led by gifted instructors who specialize in teaching young children, each session culminates with a special in-studio performance highlighting the children’s accomplishments. Students may enroll in Summerdance for either four or eight weeks, or customize their own schedule.

Snacks are provided. Children can either bring lunch from home or we can arrange to have The Corner Café deliver a healthy, child-friendly lunch each day. Kindly note, BAE is a peanut-free facility.

Early Drop-Off:  Our counselors are available to supervise the children in fun activities beginning at 8:15am until the start of the Summerdance day.

Summerdance runs Mon – Thu

Summer 2018 Session Dates will be available soon!

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.

Swimming: Children, ages 4 and up, enjoy instructional and free swim twice weekly at The New York Sports Club, located right down the block from BAE. Certified aquatics instructors ensure that everyone is safe and happy at the pool while learning to swim.

“My daughter loved Summerdance. Each day she came home so excited about the activities she did and the friends she made. She had fun, stretched her imagination and loved being part of the in-studio performances.”
