PBT (progressing ballet technique) and dance conditioning will be the start of the students' day helping them find and feel the muscles needed for proper execution of ballet and contemporary dance technique. Ballet technique, pre-pointe or pointe as well as contemporary ballet, modern, jazz, and classical variations will be part of each student's daily schedule. The goal of the intensive is to provide each student the tools and knowledge to go to their “next level” of training.

Mill Ballet's Dance Camp was created to give young creative students a chance to experience dance from learning the basic technique to performing it. Students will have classes in various dance forms from ballet to hip hop. During camp students will see how their knowledge of dance technique can be used to create choreography. As their knowledge of dance grows so does their ability to create. In addition dance related activities will cover topics such as music, dance history, and costumes. Students will have fun playing dance related games and enjoying picnic lunches outside. The goal of the camp is to provide a life-long memorable experience while enhancing each student's overall dance education and appreciation of the art.
At the end of each week on Friday at 2:30pm parents and siblings are invited to an informal performance highlighting the student’s accomplishments.
