Each year Walnut Hill School for the Arts conducts a national audition tour in January to select 60 of the most dedicated and talented young dancers (ages 13-17) from around the world to join our program. Summer Dance is a five week pre-professional ballet-based intensive for dancers ages thirteen to seventeen.
Our faculty includes world-renowned dance educators who have enjoyed careers as professional dancers, most of whom are also on our year-round faculty. Professional musicians accompany most classes, which are held in the five spacious studios of our Dance Center. The program culminates in a repertory performance in Walnut Hill’s state-of-the-art Jane Oxford Keiter Performing Arts Center.
