June 27-July 29, 2016 (one to five week sessions)
Princeton University Campus, Princeton, NJ
Daily ballet technique classes will focus on correct alignment and use of épaulement. Additional class time in dance history, anatomy, performance skills and dance composition will make a varied day for the young dancers. Two or three sessions of arts and crafts time each week help the young dancers create minor costume pieces, such as headpieces, for the ballets which they will present each Friday.
Students may register for any or all of the five weeks; however, they will enjoy and learn more by taking classes for at least two weeks, consecutively if possible. Students new to Princeton Ballet School are urged to start the session at the beginning. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis and enrollment is limited.
Summer Intensive Juniors is for dancers ages 9 and above. If they are already students at Princeton Ballet School, they should have completed the Children’s Intermediate 3 or Student 1 levels.
