THE SUMMER INTENSIVE PROGRAM
Spend your summer training under the direction of leading international master teachers!
The Central Florida Ballet Summer Intensive is designed to both challenge and encourage dancers. Our program provides professional ballet training in the Russian method taught by internationally recognized master teachers. Students will study ballet every morning and spend each afternoon studying other genres of dance. At the end of the summer session, there will be a public performance.
Classes are held at Central Florida Ballet's 5,000 square foot studios, equipped with sprung flooring.

“I loved the Summer Intensive, but it was very hard work which was really good for me. I enjoyed all different kinds of dancing.” - Julia W. (Cocoa Beach, FL)
"It was the most amazing experience and they enjoyed all the different kinds of dancing." - Mom of Alondra and Daniela S. (Cancun, Mexico)
"Thought you might like to know that Sally, a senior this year, is now planning to apply to colleges that have a ballet program. She is already talking about the auditions she would like to go to next spring. Your program gave her the confidence and awareness that ballet was the direction she would like to go. She also had a good time in Florida and away from home for those three weeks. Thanks again." - Mom of Sally K. (Newton, MA)
