Three week program
July 25 - August 12, 2011

The Summer Ballet Intensive is for intermediate and advanced ballet students. The program stresses the highly structured Vaganova syllabus, and closely resembles the program of study adhered to in the former Soviet Union. The program runs all day, Monday through Friday from 9:30 - 3:00 PM. It includes daily ballet classes plus classes in other dance forms including character, yoga, historical dance and classical variations. Advanced classes will include pointe work and partnering. Seminars such as Ballroom, massage, costuming, and drama will also be presented. Students should bring a bag lunch.
