2021 June Summer Intensive

Texas Metropolitan Ballet will be holding a one week Summer Intensive for Upper Level dancers and a separate one week intensive for Junior Level dancers designed to offer the highest quality training to the serious beginner, intermediate, and advanced student. Dancers will receive training in a safe, professional environment with sprung wood floors and non-slip marley surface.  During the week, curriculum at all levels will be focused on classical ballet augmented with additional classes for an exposure to a variety of disciplines.  It is our mission to nurture, encourage, and motivate students in the art of performing. The week-long intensive training will provide dancers the opportunity to excel through a program emphasizing technique, musicality and artistic expression necessary for the classically trained dancer.  In addition to classes taught by renowned Texas Metropolitan Ballet's faculty, students will have the opportunity to study with various nationally-recognized guest instructors

Past guest instructors have included:

  • Joy Womack - Bolshoi Ballet, Kremlin Ballet

  • Catherine Fowle - YAGP

  • Lori Bodine - San Francisco Ballet

  • Christina Coleman - Director Coleman School of Dance, NY
