Our mission at the Summer Intensive ballet program is to nurture and develop aspiring dancers with a passion for ballet. Through a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum, we provide an immersive and transformative experience that equips dancers with the technical skills and resilience necessary to thrive in the demanding world of ballet.
We engage world-class faculty, offer diverse repertoire and embrace innovation to cultivate well-rounded dancers who embody artistry, strength, and versatility. Using a holistic approach, we provide workshops for body positivity, injury prevention, and resume writing to help dancers achieve their goals and develop confidence and security in their abilities.
We offer full scholarships to male students, recognizing and addressing the historical barriers and discrimination faced by male dancers. Additional support and mentorships are provided to foster their success. We welcome and encourage women to apply for scholarship support.
