Summer Intensive 2022

Rivers of Living Water

 
 

July 4th -22nd

Dramatic Truth Summer Intensive offers a technically challenging, classical, and modern training program, designed with two very unique tracks.

This year’s sessions are:

Session 1: July 4th- 8th

Session 2: July 4th-15th

Session 3: July 4th-22nd

 

Professional Track:

The Professional track is for the career-minded young professional.

The track’s level is advanced and very demanding, with a minimum age of 16, four years of pointe, and a video audition required. The three-hour morning classes are primarily focused on daily ballet, pointe work, variations, as well as the opportunity to learn part of the very challenging Dramatic Truth Ballet Theatre’s company repertoire. Advanced contemporary, modern, and other electives are offered every afternoon.

Being accepted into this track will give you the opportunity to be considered as an apprentice or company member for Dramatic Truth Ballet Theatre’s professional dance company. Discounts for young professionals and college students are available. Please contact lizdimmel@gmail.com for more information.

Audition for Professional Track:

To be considered for the Professional Track, you must submit a link to a short audition video that includes Tendus, Adagio, Pirouettes, and jumps in center. Girls should also show some pointe work.  Note: The video does not need to have a high-quality value but should give a clear idea of the student’s technique. Please also submit the registration requirements listed below.

You will be notified of the result of the assessment in two weeks after you have submitted your video. If you are not offered a place in the Professional Program after your video is viewed, you will have the opportunity to confirm your enrollment in the Student Track, subject to availability.

Student Track- Beginner and Intermediate

The Student Track is for the beginner and intermediate students who have a passion for dance and are excited to experiment with the various genres in the dance world.  Dancers will be encouraged to refine their ballet skills and explore new styles and areas of dance.  Choreography by our faculty will be learned and performed. Ages 12 and up may apply for this track. Scholarships available based on financial need; please contact Liz Dimmel at lizdimmel@gmail.com for more information.
