We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to develop their technical abilities and explore their creativity. Ballet Chicago's Junior Intensive Program provides students the foundation necessary to excel in both areas. We inspire them to cultivate beautiful posture, teach them how to combine purity of form with individual expressiveness, and show them how to increase focus for their minds and their bodies. Both in the classroom and in performance, Ballet Chicago builds technique, artistry, awareness and self- confidence.
The Junior Intensive curriculum includes Ballet Technique, Repertoire, Modern Dance, and Classical Spanish Dance, Body Conditioning and Stretch classes. Two class levels are available; placement is based on age, amount of training, and level of advancement. Additionally, Pointe and Pre-Pointe classes are available for those enrolled in Level B. Dancers may enroll in 1, 2, or 3 weeks of the intensive.
The program concludes with an in-studio showing.
