Doxa offers Upper School students the ability to continue their training through the summer in an open class format. Purchase the Open Class Pass (punch card) that corresponds best to your family's summer schedule through the parent portal.
Classes begin mid-May, usually two weeks after the spring performances. They are held in the evening until AISD schools release for the summer, then change to a mid-afternoon time slot. Schedule and pricing is subject to change year to year.
2017 Summer Open Class Schedule
Technique I corresponds to Irises & Tulips (Men II). Technique II corresponds to Violets & Orchids (Men III & IV). Pointe placement is separate - students who participated in Doxa for the 2016-17 season should take pointe based on their placement in the previous season. New students who have been on pointe at a previous studio should take a pointe I level class for placement. Previous pointe instruction is not a guarantee for being approved for pointe instruction at Doxa.

In addition to taking open classes, Doxa encourages students in the Tulips, Violets, Orchids, and Cedars (Mens III & IV) levels to participate in our 2-day workshop in August. In addition to ballet technique classes, the workshop will include pointe, conditioning, character, variations, improv and contemporary. A daily chapel time will begin each day, and Creative Worship will conclude the workshop. T-shirt included.
Dancers do not have to be Doxa year-around students to participate. Students unsure of their placement level should attend one open class prior to enrolling (free for placement purposes). Contact email@example.com with any eligibility questions.
