The Canyon Concert Ballet School Summer Intensive offers a unique 2-week program. Week 1, June 11-16th, offers a Ballet Concentration. Week 2, June 18-23rd, offers a Contemporary Concentration. Today’s dance world demands a versatile dancer. This unique 2 week intensive offers the training today’s aspiring dancers need. While each week may be taken individually, we highly recommend enrolling in both weeks for the full benefits of the intensive.
Our internationally renowned guest instructors/ choreographers will inspire growth and renewal for all participants and prepare those students training for the demands of a professional career in an intimate, safe and nurturing environment. Focus is placed on developing the whole dancer by offering classes according to 4 levels determined by an initial placement class. Each week is designed to give students an immersive experience in classical ballet or contemporary genres and will allow students the opportunity to get to know the teachers and explore each genre more thoroughly.
In the Ballet Concentration, classes will be offered in ballet technique, pointe, variations, ballet choreography, Pilates, injury prevention and nutrition, pointe shoe selection and care and ballet history. Each day will conclude with a classical ballet or contemporary ballet repertoire class (for Levels 3 and 4) where students will learn selections to be presented at the end of the week showcase.
In the Contemporary Concentration, in addition to daily ballet classes, students will enjoy classes in contemporary ballet, modern, contemporary, jazz, hip hop, musical theatre, and Pilates, as well as lectures on injury prevention, nutrition, and dance history. Students will have the option in repertoire class of learning selections from a musical theater or learning a new contemporary choreography, both which will be presented on the final day of the intensive.
This is a unique and exciting opportunity you will not want to miss! We educate not just the dancer, but the whole person!
