Our 2017 Summer Intensive is for intermediate and advanced students, ages 11 – 18. The two-week program will focus on Ballet, Pointe and Variations, and offer supplemental courses in Conditioning, Contemporary, Jazz, Choreography, and Hip Hop. Faculty includes Ballet Idaho artistic staff as well as guest faculty from distinguished companies and schools. Unique to our Intensive is the student Choreographic Iinitiative, where students delve into the choreographic process, experiment with compositional tools and work with choreography mentors to create dance.
Our full schedule promises to be both rigorous and rewarding. Dancers will cultivate their ballet technique, develop strength and self- efficacy, all while making memories that last a lifetime. We hope you join us in the City of Trees this summer!
In collaboration with Boise State University (BSU), students will be housed in their dorms and enjoy BSU’s dining hall services for breakfast and dinner. BSU dorms are within walking distance to Ballet Idaho studios. Chaperones will escort younger students to and from the dorms. With an array of close-by restaurants and cafes, in downtown Boise, students will be responsible for their lunches.
