Hope Garden Summer Camps and Classes 2017

E-Mail ENROLLMENT IS NOW OPEN.  APPLY EARLY For this summer, 2017!!  HGBallet@aol.com

Hope Garden Ballet Academy  offers a variety of classes every summer. These camps and classes are not only fun, but they offer students an opportunity to keep dancing over the summer so as not to lose the technique gained. 

Current Intermediate students are encouraged to explore and attend a summer intensive program with an outside school to increase their exposure to other ballet teachers and styles, make new friends, as well as focus on technique during the warm summer weeks.

A $50 non-refundable deposit and e-mail response are due by April 1, 2017 for any camp or class, so HGBA can plan and reserve your spot. Please e-mail Mme Ichijo at hgballet@aol.com with any questions. See below, for tuition fee payments, using PayPal.
