During its 47th season, the Marblehead School of Ballet presents Summer Dance Intensive 2019 for ages 11 and above from July 15 to August 3.

The comprehensive curriculum includes various classes in ballet or modern, music theory, acting through dance, history, pointe or pre-pointe, composition or variations, nutrition, anatomy, injury prevention, improvisation, stretch and strength, Floor-Barre, music theory, and presentations.
