Summer Intensives 2014
The Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education is one of the largest ballet training facilities in the US. It is the official school of Atlanta Ballet, the oldest continually operating ballet company in the nation. Celebrating its 18th anniversary, the Centre is one of a few professional ballet schools in the country accredited by the National Association of Schools of Dance.
The Centre has twice been selected to represent the Southeast in the USA International Ballet Competition, one of the most prestigious ballet competitions in the world. Four dancers from the 2012 Summer Programs were selected as Fellowships and four were selected for the Conservatory program for the 2012-2013 season. Eleven Centre graduates are currently members of Atlanta Ballet, and other graduates are dancing with elite ballet companies across the country.
The Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education Summer Intensive Program has earned a reputation for excellence with a challenging, comprehensive curriculum that emphasizes strong technique, artistry, and performance. Led by Centre Director John McFall and Centre Dean Sharon Story, the summer programs are dedicated to helping each individual student maximize his or her training experience and goals. Students are mentored by outstanding faculty, Atlanta Ballet Company members, and master guest teachers from such distinguished venues as the Alvin Ailey School, Broadway, ABT, and the Danish Royal Ballet.
Several programs at various locations in Georgia are available for the intermediate through professional level dancer. Students will participate in a minimum of four classes each day, in addition to performance rehearsals. The Atlanta Ballet Centre Summer Intensives focus on developing well-rounded dancers by exposing them to a wide variety of disciplines with an emphasis on classical ballet technique.
Atlanta Ballet's 55,000-square-foot Michael C. Carlos Dance Centre, opened in 2010, is the epicenter of dance for our community and region.
