Modern Ballet – Junior Level Summer School
This five-day summer school is for young people aged approximately 10 – 12 years.
This five-day summer school is for young people aged approximately 10 – 12 years who are interested in developing skills in classical ballet technique, repertoire and contemporary dance.
The course is taught by staff who work on the RCS BA Modern Ballet progamme. Students will benefit from having the opportunity to creatively engage with the different styles taught by these specialists in the field of ballet and contemporary dance.
The course is practical, rigorous and aims to prepare young dancers working towards vocational dance training. Students will also participate in classes in a range of supporting subjects, including contemporary dance, classical repertoire, conditioning and creative.
By the end of the courses students should have:
strengthened their classical ballet technique
experienced a professional approach to practice
participated in repertoire contemporary, conditioning and creative sessions
The summer school aims to create an inspiring, challenging and supporting environment for young dancers to develop their skills and talents.
The course will take place in our beautiful dance spaces at the Wallace Studios at Speirs Locks. It will culminate in an informal sharing of the work undertaken during the week for family and friends on the last day of the course.
Please note, whilst no formal qualifications are required, previous dance experience is essential to feel confident and fully benefit from the course.
On the first day, teaching staff will observe students as they participate in classes and stream them into groups appropriate to their level. The purpose of this is to ensure everyone gets the most out of the course and is taking part in activities appropriate for their experience.
