Toledo Ballet Announces 2019 Summer Intensives

Published Thursday, March 21, 2019 10:00 am

Toledo Ballet’s Summer Intensives are rewarding, week-long ballet or theater experiences designed for students looking to refine their skills and be among peers who are also passionate about the art forms. This year, the Toledo Ballet is offering a four-week program of in-depth classes with world-class instructors designed to enhance technique, artistry, versatility, and to prepare students for life as a professional dancer.

Each intensive focuses on developing the whole artist and offers high quality instruction taught by renowned master teachers with extensive ballet and stage experience. A week of intensives includes four to five hours of daily instruction. Students will be immersed in a positive cultural environment where they will engage in all facets of performing. Each summer intensive is dedicated to nurturing the growth of the individual student in a group class setting. Intensives will culminate with a studio performance where students will showcase their progress along with peers in their class.
