NEW this summer are our workshops!

Summer Camps

 APPRENTICES 

Ages 2-3

DEMI SOLOISTS

Ages 4-7

Our week-long summer camps are immersive and enriching opportunities designed specifically for budding young dancers to explore and enjoy! Whether your dancer is dreaming of pirouettes or just taking their first plié, our camps provide a welcoming community for dancers to learn and grow with friends, both old and new.

 

Each week, young ballerinas and danseurs step into the captivating realm of a different beloved ballet. Camp days are filled with engaging activities that highlight our theme for the week and immerse dancers in the complete spectrum of artistic endeavors. At week's end, all the fun cultivates in an in-class performance for dancers to proudly present all they have learned.

Our goals go beyond just teaching technique. Lessons learned through ballet are able to go far "beyond the barre", with skills acquired supporting dancers in all other areas of their lives. We aim to spark imagination, encourage creativity, and grow a love of dance in our students that inspires.

Summer Intensives

SOLOISTS

Ages 8-12

PRINCIPALS

Ages 13-18

Each week-long summer intensive provides a comprehensive immersion into the empowering world of dance and all that it encompasses. Through daily full technique classes and engaging workshops, the opportunities to learn and progress are endless! Embracing a holistic approach, our intensives are designed to enhance technique, develop artistry, and reignite passion in a dancer's craft, while also enjoying social time and fun activities to recharge.

 

Intensives serve as vital catalysts, propelling dancers forward in their goals in just one week, prioritizing genre-specific dance training, correct technique, strength building, and choreography. While our intensives are ballet-focused, they also serve as a platform for dancers to explore new genres, artistic expression, and the cultural context of ballet and the performing arts. Each day, dancers take level-appropriate technique and movement classes in styles of dance that play crucial roles in both modern and traditional ballet performances. Additional classes and workshops vary daily, and allow dancers to delve deeper and gain even more insight into backstage performance elements. At week’s end, all we have learned and worked on is showcased in an informal in-studio performance for dancer's families.

*EXPERIENCE/LEVELS*
We welcome dancers of all levels, from little to no experience through advanced dancers. On the first day of the week, dancers are placed in class levels that align with their abilities to ensure they can thrive and get the most out of the week. When evaluating levels for dancers, we consider both technical proficiency and age. While technique classes are taken within individual skill levels, all participants come together for additional workshops and social time, allowing the chance to learn appropriately, yet still enjoy time with all friends old and new.
