Summer Intensive 2018

Our Summer Ballet Intensive program this year will be given over 3 weeks in July and 2 weeks in August:
July 9-13, 11:00-5:00 pm
July 16-20, 11:00-5:00 pm
July 23-27, 11:00-5:00 pm
August 6-10, 11:00-5:00 pm
August 13-17, 11:00-5:00 pm
There will be 6 hours of activities each day (Mon-Fri), including ballet technique classes and practicing of Classical Ballet variations. The variations are chosen so as to be used later in our recitals and performances, and could also be performed at Classical Ballet competitions.

The program is for students ages 6 to 12 (although some exceptions may be allowed). The cost is $140/week per student. Students are encouraged to attend all 5 weeks of the program (as the program is not repetitive, but cumulative). This is a perfect opportunity for students to acquire much needed knowledge and experience that would otherwise require a series of private lessons.

Each week students will be learning variations from classical ballets such as Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Giselle, La Bayadere, Le Corsair, Don Quixote, Nutcracker, Coppelia, Paquita. There will be a showcase of the students’ work on Friday July 27th and Friday August 17th.
