Students at last year’\s Ballet Ireland Summer School.

STARTING this coming Monday, July 28, at An Grianan Theatre, Letterkenny, is the very popular Ballet Summer School run by the International company Ballet Ireland.

The school is suitable from six years up, including adults and there are still places available. This year it’s all about shoes!


Drawing on inspiration from the original tale, The Elves and the Shoemaker, this year’s participants will have an unforgettable time creating a ballet with professional dancers from Ballet Ireland. Each day begins with class on stage with the dancers.

Summer school participants become part of the creative process, helping to devise the choreography, create sets and costumes (including shoes!).

Our hugely popular summer school, gives aspiring performers a taste for all that goes into making a ballet and a peak into the life of a professional dancer.

Together with the dancers, the young performers play an important role in the creation of their own full length ballet which is performed on stage at the end of the week for family and friends to come and enjoy.

Ballet Ireland is the National Ballet Company of Ireland. Suitable for ages 6+ with or without dance training.
