SPB has been monitoring developments related to COVID-19 and diligently navigating the best course of action regarding our 2020 Summer Intensive and other Summer Programming. In consideration of guidelines from various national authorities coupled with keeping the health and safety of all involved as our primary focus, we have made the difficult decision to transition to virtual, live-class training for all our Summer Programming.  This includes our Summer Intensive, Children’s, and Adult Programs. We are confident that this method is the correct choice for protecting our students and staff during these unprecedented times and are certain that The School of Pennsylvania Ballet can offer virtual instruction that is both challenging and valuable.

Let your inner dancer shine! Ballet isn’t just for those on a professional track. Whether you’re looking to indulge your passion, push your boundaries, immerse yourself in a new challenge, or just get a great workout in, The School of Pennsylvania Ballet offers a variety of classes to choose from for dancers ages 15 and above. No auditions required!






Tuesdays 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm

Our open adult ballet classes are for any adult who wants to take ballet. Whether you have never taken a dance class in your life or have had prior experience and wish to renew your passion, you will feel well taken care of and comfortable. These virtual live ballet classes go through the entire classical ballet class structure. Starting at the barre, then to the center; where we always finish with a few jumps and rejuvenating stretches on the floor. The intention of the class is to keep the pace moving so each dancer feels they have achieved a great workout, learned some basic ballet terminology and had a chance to express themselves artistically. The Adult Program at SPB sets out to create a space in which everyone has the opportunity to feel good about themselves by encouraging dancers to do what they can and to also feel comfortable modifying to better suit their body’s needs.  


Virtual Absolute Beginner

Ballet Workshop


THURSDAYS, 6:00-7:30pm



The Absolute Beginner Ballet Workshop is a six-class series of classes designed to meet the needs of anyone who has the desire to slow it down, focus on technique and learn from the very beginning. There is absolutely no previous experience necessary. Each dancer will be under the care of our Adult Program Principal, Jessica Kilpatrick, who will guide you through beginning steps and teach the skills one needs in order to understand and execute the basics of ballet. The workshop instills confidence and prepares the dancer to enter any open beginner ballet class. The Absolute Beginner Workshop is an opportunity to take part in an intimate group setting where all questions can be asked, individual one on one attention is maximized and we move and progress at our own pace.
