Ballet des Amériques is pleased to announce its 2016 Summer Intensive program. 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. Please consult the schedule below.
Summer Intensive – 4-week program – August 1 – 26
Mondays through Fridays from 9am until 2:30pm
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, and this year’s program will culminate in a performance at the end of August.
Participation in our summer program is by audition only. Auditions dates: February 27, March 12 and April 9, 2016. Please call 646-753-0457 or e-mail [email protected] to register.
