Hello, Ballet Families!
Ballet at Balance will be sending out monthly newsletters to keep you all up-to-date with all of the happenings! This month, we will be discussing the importance of summer training, specifically the benefits of attending summer intensives!
Summer is a great time to allow dancers to focus on their passions, without the pressure of school and working to maintain their grades. I often see exceptional growth of dancers over the summer when they are able to put their full focus on dance. Those who do not choose to continue their training through the summer often return to classes in the fall, disconnected from their bodies and all that they learned the previous year.
Dancers also have the amazing opportunity to attend intensives and workshops over the summer to help maximize their growth. They have the opportunity to join us at our Ballet Summer Intensive, as well as to take advantage of summer intensives all over the world! Ballet companies, schools, and conservatories all over the world hold summer intensives, allowing students to train from their elite ballet staff. Acceptance to these intensives is based on auditions held by the company/school/conservatory, and range in length from 2-6 weeks. I highly encourage any dancers who are serious about their ballet training to consider attending a ballet intensive from a professional company, in addition to our in-house ballet intensive! I have included some testimonials from our ballet staff on their experiences at summer intensives and how fabulous they can be!
