This July, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, right after the Summer Intensive ballet program, we will have Emma Sacchetti teaching Jazz classes. The classes are 90 minute long, cost $10 each, and open for children ages 7-17. See Schedule for more details. Please contact us with any questions.
Emma Sacchetti has been dancing since the age of 3. She has trained in many different styles of dance with a number of choreographers and teachers. Emma won different scholarships from Tremaine, NUVO, and other traveling conventions. She was on Premier Dance Centers company for 9 years and also studied ballet with Inna Esipova at Inna Ballet. At this time, Emma is a full time choreographer and teacher at one of Pinellas County’s leading studios in Florida, West Florida Dance Center, where Emma has choreographed overall winning routines and had experience working with all ages and levels.
Thank you to all who participated in and attended our Summer Recital on Sunday June 21. It went very well and a selection of pictures have been posted on our Facebook page. Here is one picture of our “Little Bells:”
Everyone is welcome! Tickets can be purchased at 20% discount at the studio, or at the full price on the day of the performance. Please contact us for more details.
This year we will have 3 weeks of Summer Intensive Ballet Program in July:
July 6-10, 13-17, 20-24
There will be 4 hours of activities each day (M-F), including ballet technique classes and practicing of ballet variations. The starting time is set to be at 12:00 (noon).
The program is for students ages 8 to 17 (although some exceptions may be allowed). The cost is $120/week per student. Students are encouraged to attend all 3 weeks of the program.
Each week students will be learning a new set of variations from classical ballets such as Swan Lake, Sleeping Beauty, Giselle, La Bayadere, Le Corsair, Don Quixote, Cipollino, Nutcracker, Coppelia, Paquita, Carmen, Firebird, Scheherazade. There will be a showcase of the students’ work at the end of the program (on Friday July 24).
Please send an email to InnaBallet@gmail.com with questions or to register. As spacing is limited, payment of the tuition in advance is recommended to reserve the space in the program.
Tickets are available at the Inna Ballet school now, with a 20% discount. Tickets will also be available “at the door,” ahead of the performance on Sunday.
Please go to our Facebook page to see more pictures, including the ones from our Spring 2014 Recital.
Please note that registration fee of $25 for the new academic year (Sept 2014 – Aug 2015) is due with the first monthly tuition (for new and current students).
For the cost of monthly tuition, see schedule. Note that the newly introduced “all-inclusive tuition” of $250/month may be especially convenient for some of the students.
Happy Labor Day to everyone! Classes will resume on Tuesday September 2nd!
