About the Summer Intensive

 

The Orlando Ballet School Summer Intensive is for intermediate to advanced students ages 11 and up. OBS offers American training incorporating precise footwork, classical port de bras, and preparation for today’s classical ballet companies. Our summer program places strong emphasis on ballet technique training, but also offers supplementary classes in character, pointe, variations, modern, jazz, men’s, partnering and nutrition. View a complete list of full-time faculty here. Both Orlando and Jacksonville programs will have additional guest teachers throughout the intensives. Faculty will include Orlando Ballet Company Dancers and artistic staff. The two-week program in Jacksonville will also feature members from the Florida Ballet Training Center.
