Join JDGYB this summer for a ballet intensive unlike any other! Each day will involve a ballet based warm up, multiple technique classes, one on one sessions with multiple instructors and private ballet based Pilates apparatus sessions. Students will also gain practical knowledge from watching historical ballets, learning about the history of ballet and studying famous dancers. The camp will focus on correct placement and advanced technique skills with an immersion into the ballet world.
The JDGYB is a year round student company consisting of dancers between the ages of 7 and 18. Dancers for the upcoming season will be chosen out of the week long camp. At the end of the camp week friends and family will be invited to the main stage for an informal showing.
