Ballet des Amériques is pleased to announce its 2015 Summer Intensive program. Summer intensives have a long tradition in the world of dance – bridging the gap between the spring and fall semesters – but also fulfilling a complementary role with respect to the regular school curriculum: Largely free from academic obligations, students are able to concentrate on dance and make leaps of progress in training, iron out weaknesses, and consolidate what was achieved during the academic year. Quite importantly, the warmth of the summer months makes for greatly increased flexibility, which, when intensely exercised, can propel students to a higher level.
