State Street Ballet's Summer Intensive is for serious ballet students age 12–21. Classes include ballet technique, pointe, partnering, modern, jazz, character, and strength-building classes. We provide students with the opportunity to learn and perform excellent choreography, which ranges from classical to contemporary in style. The artistry of dance is expressed through choreography, and we place a strong emphasis on its value. Our Summer Intensive Program culminates in a fully staged performance that friends and family can attend on Friday, July 10th, 2015. The cost of this program is $1750 for tuition only and $3,670 for tuition and housing.

State Street Ballet’s Colorado Extension is a two-week program in Durango presented by State Street Ballet and the Community Concert Hall at Ft. Lewis College. The program will focus on all aspects of performance including private variation coaching. This extension can be taken separately or in conjunction with the Santa Barbara Summer Intensive program. The cost of this program is $875 for tuition only and $1750 for tuition and housing.
