Ballet Intensives

Intensive Camps

June 27, 2016 through August 18, 2016

Summer is an excellent time to focus on technique, artistry, stamina, flexibility and strength. Dancers progress in leaps and bounds during Intensives & often accomplish what might take months or years to achieve.

We offer the following Intensive Camps (see below for more details and to register):

• Ballet Intensive – Technique Tune-up
• Ballet Intensive – Beginning (level I-II)
• Ballet Intensive – Int/Adv (Level III-V)
• Ballet Intensive – Art of Performing & Dance Composition

PLEASE NOTE: Int/Adv Intensive Ballet program open to dancers enrolled in Ballet III-IV at IAD or with instructor recommendation. Beginning Intensive Ballet program open to dancers enrolled in Ballet I-II at IAD or with instructor recommendation. Dancers not enrolled at IAD or currently in other classes may schedule a private audition/assessment.

Prepare for summer by attending dance classes regularly. Dancers participating in an Intensive without regular training beforehand are at risk for injury. Continue to train after summer programs for maximum benefits.
