Creative Development in a Disciplined Environment
The aim of the summer ballet program is to provide students, and the community with a classical ballet
training center that produces dancers of the highest caliber. Their dance education centers around mastering the classical technique, which includes pointe work and repertory, in addition to technique classes, so that they will have the tools and facilities to pursue their potential as young artists.

The program is supplemented by nutritional seminars, injury prevention and body conditioning classes, in addition to supplementary studies in contemporary and modern dance techniques. Students perform regularly from both a classical and contemporary repertoire, thus making the transition seamless from classroom to stage, so that upon emergence from the program, the dancer will be well equipped to pursue a professional career.
The summer is a time for concentrated study. The body is naturally warmer and prepared to absorb more information, while the mind is free from the commitments of the school year. Taking full advantage of these enhanced physical and mental faculties, we are offering a comprehensive training intensive. Beginning the day with ballet technique class, moving on to pointe and variations, a pause for lunch, followed by classical and contemporary repertory, body conditioning, and nutritional seminars.

Great Musicians such as Larry Coryell, Odean Pope and other luminaries occasionally agree to participate in the performance workshops.  These classes are a tremendous inspiration to the students and will be scheduled whenever the artists schedule permits.
