Classical Ballet Intensive 1

June 22, 2020 - 8:00 am

 The Pennsylvania Academy of Ballet is offering two Classical Ballet Intensives (a 2-week session and a 3-week session) in the summer of 2020. Instruction focuses on classical ballet technique based on the Vaganova curriculum and method of training. Each session will include a strong mix of technique, variations, pointe, and partnering. 

2020 supplemental classes will include modern, and character dance, as well as a “Technique Focus” class that will bring intense attention to different individual steps each day. Conditioning classes will include a variety of cross-training techniques focusing on the specific needs of the dancer. 

Dancers will arrive each day at 11 am or noon depending on the day of the week (see daily schedule for Group A & B details). The dancers will finish each evening Monday through Thursday at 5:30 pm, with an earlier dismissal on Fridays.  

The program is designed for students age 12 and up who have had a minimum of four consecutive years of ballet training and one year on pointe. Classes are small which allows for highly individualized attention and fosters an environment centered on personal growth.
