Intensive Ballet Program
The Intensive Ballet training program is a high-powered stratagem designed to offer aspiring young dancers the opportunity to commence their journey towards either the professional or collegiate level. These special dancers are required to attend 9-12 hours of ballet each week. They are given numerous opportunities to showcase their craft, including 4 repertory shows in October, December, March and June. Class work typically includes; barre, center, Pointe, variations, pas de deux, and choreography. It is our desire that dancers from the Intensive Level leave with the tools necessary to succeed in any performing environment of their choosing.Those interested in the Intensive Ballet Program must demonstrate their skill, desire, and commitment to the program. A student letter of intent and teacher recommendations begin the process. For more information, contact the DDC&G office.
