2017 SUMMER INTENSIVE INFORMATION

Our comprehensive curriculum is designed for serious ballet students aspiring to improve their technique. The program is founded in the elegant, technical and powerful Cuban method of ballet which allows young students to increase their self-discipline, attention, strength, flexibility and agility; not only in ballet, but in other forms of dance, as well. 

Once again, this year’s summer intensive will have instructors of the highest caliber. Alma’s program will provide dancers with the wonderful opportunity to improve their technical and artistic skills during their training this summer. We believe our summer intensive will also be an exceptional experience for our dancers because they will be immersed in a very encouraging and positive environment.

Focus, precision, and determination are crucial aspects of technique that we encourage our dancers to work on daily. Balance is only the beginning.

Dedication, hard work, discipline and concentration are essential for dancers to always achieve their best in class. To practice is to enable your dreams.

Here at Alma, dancers not only receive high quality training, but instructors also take time to work with each dancer for individual improvement. Corrections can make all the difference.

               

A dancer develops excellent technique by starting with work at the barre. We instill in our dancers at a young age the value of slow and clean barre work. Correct placement and alignment are vital to achieve success in the center and on pointe. 

Controlled and virtuosic turns are exceptional qualities of the Cuban method of ballet. Those trained in the Cuban style are not only proficient technicians but inspiring artists.
