This five-week intensive program is designed to give students a taste of the demands of a professional career. Students will have the opportunity to improve their skills, gain strength, and broaden their point of view. The schedule includes technique, pas de deux, pointe, and batterie. Additional classes may include variations, contemporary dance, character dance, fencing, dance history, and Pilates mat classes. Classes are taught by San Francisco Ballet School's faculty and guests from San Francisco Ballet Company. Students are selected to attend the program by audition only. San Francisco Ballet School's National Audition TourÂ is held in January and February. Students attending the summer session who display exceptional potential, and who are old enough to live away from home, may be invited to attend the school-year program.
