Offering the very best of dance and culture, young dancers remain active in recreation, learning, creativity, and fun, at America's leading Latinx dance organization.

"COVID-19 may be limiting our activities right now, but it does not stop our desire to be creative and connect. We are excited to be able to offer the option to take our summer courses virtually or in-person this summer, ensuring that our students, of all ages, stay connected, dancing, and learning, whether at home or in the studio" said Michelle Manzanales, Director of the School of Dance, Ballet Hispánico. Summer programs are planned to take place both in-person and virtually. Registration is limited for both options and strict COVID safety measures are in place for in-person dancers. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, only residents of the tri-state area (New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut) are permitted to attend the in-person program options. Students outside of the tri-state area may not attend the in-person offerings. The virtual program is open to students in any location.
