Summer Intensive Intermediates

Summer Intensive Intermediates offers an exciting summer program for young dancers, modeled on our internationally acclaimed Summer Intensive, of which it is an extension. Summer Intensive Intermediates offers the same careful, personal training for which Princeton Ballet School is famous and is presented by some of the same teachers as those who teach the Intensive.

The Program

(One to Seven-Week Sessions)

MONDAY – THURSDAY
9:30 A.M. – 3:00 P.M.
(week of July 4th Classes M, W, TH & F)

JUNE 24 -JULY 26, 2024
Cranbury Studio
29 N. Main Street, Cranbury, NJ

AUGUST 12-23, 2024
Princeton Studio
301 N. Harrison St., Princeton, NJ

Age 11 and up is a key time in the training of a young dancer, and the opportunity to study more intensively, and to experience a wider variety of dance styles, can make a huge difference in a young dancer’s progress. Each day begins with a strong ballet class and is followed by pre-pointe, pointe, variations, turning clinic, stretch and strength, choreography, modern dance, or jazz.

The program is for dancers at a high intermediate level. Many of these dancers have recently begun their pointe work. Others are getting ready for this major moment in a dancer’s life. We spend time within the week working on basic pointe exercises and pointe readiness work. For the young men involved, we focus on core strength, as well as improving jumps and turns. Serious young dance students will want to take four to seven weeks of the program. Each week builds on and refers to the others. But please note that one can take the program for as little as one week. Each week has a different theme, with a classical ballet being studied. Admission is on a first-come, first served basis and enrollment is limited.

“My daughter just completed the workshop. Your faculty…were the utmost professional and caring group of instructors. Besides improving her strength, endurance and technique, they provided an atmosphere that allowed her to build self-esteem and to develop confidence in her ability in dance. Thank you for the wonderful summer experience!”
