The 3-Week Intensive has been designed to provide a rich, intensive experience of classical training. It includes daily classes (Monday through Saturday) in ballet technique, pointe, and variations, as well as a sampling of other dance forms to enrich the training of the classical dance student. These other classes include Russian Character, Pilates, Modern, and Contemporary. Student choreography is also welcomed and encouraged. In addition, there are special classes in performance preparation, including stage makeup, costume tips, pointe shoe care, etc.
This program provides a full range of rewarding classes specializing in personalized coaching from world-renowned teachers. Each student receives individual attention throughout the program and has the opportunity to perform in two or three dances during the final studio performance.
A Message From The Director…
I encourage you to read through this material carefully. Sending your daughter or son away to another city or another state is a big decision, and we want you to feel assured that we take very seriously the supervision and care of each of our visiting students.
Over the past 40 years, under the same artistic and administrative direction, the Long Beach Ballet has continuously molded young talent into professional dancers and brought joy to our students and pride to their parents.
Our method? A combination of admiration and respect for youth and a collection of world-class teachers who love sharing their knowledge and inspiration with others.
Our commitment to our students and to their parents is that all participants of our Summer Program leave Long Beach with a new zeal for ballet, additional technical knowledge and ability, and many wonderful memories.
