Guided tours of Pennsylvania Ballet’s studios offer a thrilling behind-the-scenes look at the day-to-day operations of an elite professional performing arts organization. Visits include a presentation by a member of the staff, a tour of the facility, and an opportunity to observe the Company as they rehearse for an upcoming production.
A part of most studio visits, master classes give students and community members an opportunity to take a ballet class taught by a member of the artistic staff. Students stand at the barre and learn basic ballet, experiencing a piece of everyday life of professional dancers.
