Summer PROGRAMS for dancers ages 5-18 (June 11 - August 3)
The Conservatory's robust Summer Programs offers world class ballet training for dancers ages 5 - 18. Summer offers the perfect opportunity to build skills in intermediate or advanced dancers who have more time to train during the relaxed summer months. Additionally, the summer program is an ideal time to introduce younger children to classical ballet, potentially sparking an ongoing passion for ballet or simply serving to support a child's sporting, music or other interests through learning the postural control, coordination and other skills which ballet training provides.
Students may register from one week (minimum) to eight weeks (maximum) and an end-of-camp performance will delight parents and guests four times during the eight week intensive (every two weeks there will be a special performance on the stage at The Conservatory's camp's location at Greenwich Academy's Wallace Performing Arts Center). Audition is required for dancers 14-18 only.
The heart of the Conservatory's Summer program is its world-class faculty who have a demonstrated passion for teaching ballet and passing on their knowledge to the next generation. Faculty includes: Liudmila Poloanskaya (former teacher at Vaganova Academy), Natalyz Zeiger (gradate of Bolsoi Ballet Academy with teaching degree also from Bolshoi), Marie Loren Fichaux (first soloist with Paris Opera Ballet with PhD in French literature), Keenan Kampa(graduate of Vaganova Academy and former dancer with Boston Ballet and the Mariinsky Theatre). Compete faculty biographies are viewable on our Faculty Page.
The Conservatory is also excited to welcome renowned ballet photographer Gene Schiavone to our campus to do ballet head shots and artistic ballet full pose portraits. Sessions are available for our campers and dates and details are listed on our Summer Registration Page.
