Summer Ballet Forum and Intro to Ballet Forum Information
The Ballet Forum is a 2 day ballet intensive workshop providing students ages 12-21 years of age, having a minimum of 2 years ballet training, the opportunity to study with a professional classical ballet faculty. Along with technique classes each day, there will be two special performance pieces choreographed and taught by the distinguished ballet forum faculty in a ballet company atmosphere. The pieces will be performed at the annual SADM Banquet on Saturday evening.
To assure individual attention, participants are divided into two Forums based on age and advancement. The purpose of the placement class is to allow the Choreographers the opportunity to observe the students prior to the choreography classes. Attendance at the placement class is mandatory along with a rehearsal Saturday at 4pm.
The Intro to Ballet Forum is a workshop for students 10-11 years of age. It offers your students knowledge of what to expect when they become 12 years of age and are able to participate in The Ballet Forum. In preparing the students we will review ballet steps, learn helpful ways to apply and execute technique ,work on their turns and jumps along with learning the ballet body positions and ballet vocabulary.
To attend you must have had 2 years of ballet training and be age 10 - 11 years old.
We are pleased to invite parents into class the last 15 minutes to view what our intro students have been working on!
