Manhattan Youth Ballet’s Summer Intensive is designed to polish individuals’ technique through daily classes and further develop each dancer’s artistry through repertoire rehearsals and classes in other techniques.
Every level will receive daily technique classes and pointe (pre-pointe for younger students) as well as Pilates conditioning and Jazz at least once a week. More advanced levels will have supplemental classes such as character, contemporary and pas de deux. Dedicated Men’s class will be offered at least 3 times a week.
Students enrolled for the FULL three-week performance program will have afternoon repertoire each day in preparation for the final performance in the state-of-the-art MMAC theater.
Please Note: Supervised housing is NOT provided during the Manhattan Youth Ballet Summer Intensive. However, we can provide participants with a list of housing options that can be used as a resource when searching for housing in New York City.
