Summer Intensives


With an abundance of caution, Moscow Ballet's summer intensives have been postponed until 2022.

"My technique has improved a lot thanks to you. I also loved all the variations... You are such an inspiring teacher and the experience you gave me is truly one I will never forget!" - 2019 Summer Intensive student from Fairfax, VA to instructor Alisa Bolotnikova

Open to ballet students intermediate through advanced levels, this comprehensive program provides a positive and supportive environment for student dancers to develop their technical and artistic ballet skills. It is a unique opportunity for young dancers to study Russian ballet technique and repertory one-on-one with Moscow Ballet Soloists and Instructors Yuriy Kuzo and Alisa Bolotnikova. 

Moscow Ballet holds week-long Summer Intensives from June through August in various cities. Contact us at [email protected] if you are interested in learning more.
