It's so much more than the average ballet intensive! Week four's intensive focuses on the Romantic Ballet Era - with special emphasis on Bournonville style. The ballet technique classes will include the Bournonville Barre exercises taught for over a century at the Royal Danish Ballet School. This style produces strong dancers with wonderful jumps and beats, and produced the great ballerinas who were known for their lightness of movement. Pointe class and variations from Romantic repertory will be followed by Randall Newsom showing selected rare videos from his extraordinary video collection. There will be observation in classes on Thursday, July 2.

Enrollment in this intensive is limited to 30, so make sure to sign up as soon as possible.
