Ballet is one of the most beautiful and expressive art forms. Studying ballet technique greatly enhances your experience with other dance disciplines. This is an excellent camp for any dancer looking to advance their technical abilities. This camp will focus on learning new steps, increasing stamina, flexibility and strength and will pay special attention to enhancing the unique artistry of each dancer. Dancers have the opportunity to take class and/or learn choreography from the guest instructor and Academy staff. All dancers will work with Ms. Huber  for a portion of the intensive. Dress code is a black leotard. Our permanent faculty will also teach.
