Summer intensives have a long tradition in the world of dance – bridging the gap between the spring and fall semesters – but also fulfilling a complementary role with respect to the regular school curriculum: Largely free from academic obligations, students are able to concentrate on dance and make leaps of progress in training, iron out weaknesses, and consolidate what was achieved during the academic year. Quite importantly, the warmth of the summer months makes for greatly increased flexibility, which, when intensely exercised, can propel students to a higher level.
The 2017 Summer Intensive is a 4-week program from July 31 through August 25, 2017, Mondays through Fridays from 9am until 2:30pm. A concluding performance is scheduled for Saturday, August 26, at the Tarrytown Music Hall. Details to be announced.
Classes and workshops in: ballet, pre-pointe, pointe, répertoire, partnering, modern dance, modern jazz, barre au sol, music and voice, ballet terminology (French), dance history, acting, arts and crafts, folkloric dance, stage makeup. Each week there will be Master Classes taught by renowned guest teachers.
