Ballet Summer Intensive
June 11–17 & 18–24, 2023
The outstanding faculty of the Jacobs School of Music Ballet Department are once again offering a summer intensive that will challenge your technique, hone your artistic skill, and give you the opportunity to experience the most prestigious university ballet program in the nation:
The Ballet Summer Intensive, for students ages 13 to 18-years, is a program for growth and learning. It includes two 1-week sessions that can be taken together or separately, with classes scheduled Monday through Friday from 9AM-5PM. Not only will dancers experience the rigor of the profession while they prepare repertoire for performance, they will be doing so at one of the most physically intensive summer sessions in the nation! Dancers perform neoclassical and classical repertoire, as well as new works choreographed on them each week by esteemed faculty choreographers. A dorm and meal plan option adds to the university experience.
The program offers classes in technique, pointe, variations, conditioning, contemporary and modern ballet, music appreciation, ballet history, and nutrition. Students will also have the opportunity to be choreographed on and present a small studio showing each Saturday for parents and friends near and far.
