2021 SUMMER INTENSIVE PROGRAM

DIRECTED BY AMANDA MCKERROW AND JOHN GARDNER

June 14 - July 16, 2021
Ages 11-20 on pointe; Audition Required

Under the direction of Amanda McKerrow and John Gardner, Colorado Ballet Academy offers a Summer Intensive designed for students intermediate through pre-professional levels. The Summer Intensive Program strives to maintain an atmosphere of creative freedom for every student and a safe place to test boundaries while learning new ways to push beyond them. At this time, for those that are registered for the Hybrid Intensive, we are planning for fully in-person instruction. Please note, if CDC guidelines and/or State mandates change, the program may transition back to a hybrid or virtual program.

Ballet classes will be taught by Artistic Leaders of the organization, providing the highest caliber training and fostering excellence in dance. Students will experience a daily schedule that balances rigorous training, skills for physical and mental health along with time for mentorship and connection. Two-week, three-week and five-week options are available, with an optional Saturday morning drop-in classes.

  • 2 Week Program: June 14 - June 25, 2021
  • 3 Week Program: June 28 - July 16, 2021
  • 5 Week Program: June 14 - July 16, 2021
