Summer Intensive 2013
Auditions for Young Intermediate Level!
Due to an ever-growing interest in the Ellison Ballet Summer Intensive, we are excited to announce the expansion of our program with a Young Intermediate Level!
This level will be offered during the main summer intensive, July 1, 2013 – July 26, 2013. With this addition, we are able to accept more talent at younger ages, girls and boys from ages 11-13.
These students will receive the same comprehensive training as students in the Intermediate and Advanced levels, though tailored more to the needs of younger dancers.
Training correctly at an early age is vital to a dancer's professional career, and students will benefit greatly from the highly effective teaching methods of master teacher, Edward Ellison, and his international faculty. The Young Intermediate Level enables Ellison Ballet to instill and develop strong technique, self-awareness, and the individual artistic potential early in the students' dance careers. These students will leave with more refinement technically and artistically, and exude strength, accuracy, confidence, and knowledge in their future endeavors.

There is great emphasis on our men's program, focusing on the development of the power, stamina, and masculinity associated with strong male technique.

The curriculum affords an excellent opportunity to greatly improve technical skill, develop greater self awareness and gain a deeper understanding of individual artistic potential.
Students learn from the highly effective teaching methods of master teacher Edward Ellison and his international faculty. They come away with greater strength, precision, confidence, and knowledge — and ultimately experience the power and poetry of the art that is ballet.
