Barcelona Summer Dance was started by the founder Elise Lummis in 1990. Initially it was just one ballet class every day, as a service to the professional ballet dancers of Barcelona, so they had somewhere to take professional classes during the summer break.

Barcelona Summer Dance has evolved during the last 30 years to become a dance institution and a reference point for dancers who wants to dance in Barcelona in the summer, and be guaranteed  to have access to ballet and modern classes with top teachers every day during the summer.

Every summer dancers find their way from all the world to come to Barcelona and take ballet or modern classes at Barcelona Summer Dance.

We offer classes for children from 5 years, to young adults and professional dancers. With more than 35 classes every day, there will be a class matching every need.

The teachers for the children have mostly been training with us since they where children themselves. And all the teachers for the adults have had international careers as professional dancers.
