Pro-Dance Intensive brings world renowned teachers to work with participants to provide a sneak peek at what professional life is really like: the schedule, the rehearsals, the intensity, the rigor, everything behind the glamour of life as a professional. The schedule is intense and pushes students to learn at an accelerated pace, giving them excellent final preparation before annual summer national competitions, as well as a head start on next year’s progress. Training hard is the only way to dance like a Pro!
Pointe & Men's Work
The essential extension which brings further mastery of achievement is pointe work for ladies and men’s work for the gentlemen. For those students who have already been working en pointe, daily pointe training creates stability, strength, coordination and proficiency in this beautiful yet challenging aspect of the ballet. Men’s work includes work on intricate pirouettes, magnificent jumps and tricks that are showcased in the technical bravado of the most exciting male dancers.
Stretch, BT2 & Variations
A full day of dance allows students to take classes not offered elsewhere.
- Stretch & Conditioning: for accentuating lines, injury prevention, and for stamina and strength.
- Variations: the chance to learn the vast classical repertoire including Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, La Bayadere, and more.
