Summer Intensive Curriculum

Summer Intensive Curriculum

The curriculum at San José Dance Theatre is based on the Vaganova Russian style and honors the influences of the Balanchine American and Bournonville Danish styles.

Classes in San Jose Dance Theatre’s Summer Intensive will include:

Ballet Technique
Pointe and Pre-Pointe
Men’s/Boys Ballet
Pas de Deux
Student Choreography
Chinese Tumbling
Conditioning, focused on: Pilates, Yoga, Intensive stretching, Injury Prevention Education
Ballet Education
Repertory and rehearsals for the In-Studio Showing

Dancers will have two short breaks and a ½ hour lunch. These are long days of training and we recommend dancers get much rest after training and on the weekends during the summer intensive.
