Our Summer Sessions provide students from Pre-Ballet to Level 7 with a continuation of their exemplary year-round ballet training, along with exposure to other dance disciplines, including jazz, contemporary and character. For Boys, focus is given to grand allegro, pirouettes and conditioning with specialized classes that equip young men to meet these technical demands with finesse.
CHILDREN’S INTERMEDIATE INTENSIVE
(Group A) Levels 3, 3+ and (Group B) Levels 4, 4+
August 2 – 6 Monday – Friday $500.00
10:00-3:00 (Studio 7, 5 & Outdoor Studio)
Our Intermediate Intensive for Levels 3 to 4+ is intended to give an all-encompassing education through the creation of a dance project, from conception to actualization. In addition to a daily ballet class, students will each choreograph a classical or contemporary piece to their own selection of music, as well as devise the set and costumes in miniature. Their work is ultimately presented at an in-class performance on the final day of the intensive. Beginning with a vision that evolves with music, movement and design, each phase of production supplies students with important tools to facilitate their creative and personal development.
