The three-week summer ballet workshop will include Vaganova/Balanchine classes, Ballet Technique, Pointe, Classical Repertoire, a Choreography Workshop and  Pilates or Floor Barre.

First Audition for this program is by video (variation or ballet class)

Second Audition for this program is in the Ballet auditorium. Ballet teachers and choreographers will choose participants for their plays (July 14th)

Participants who do not pass to participate in the Gala concert program will be directed to the group for the Show performance (for friends and parents)

Students will be immersed in dance sessions with classes of five to six hours per day and six days per week, learning from our famous masterclass instructors Vaganova/Balanchine Ballet Class, Ballet Technique, Variations, Pointe, Repertoire, Contemporary and Jazz technique, Pilates and Floor ballet barre and stretching.

This summer workshop allows students to experience intensive professional ballet training in a nurturing and safe environment with students from a wide range of countries and cultures.

Our program in the Ballet Summer Workshop Estonia is designed for advanced level ballet students in schools or ballet dancers. The three-week summer ballet workshop will include Vaganova/Balanchine Ballet Class, Ballet Technique, Variations, Pointe, Repertoire, Contemporary or Jazz technique, Pilates and Floor ballet barre or stretching.

Our requirement is a minimum classical ballet experience of four years and on pointe experience of three years. Balanchine and other techniques we have chosen are very demanding and are taught in our program for advanced level dancers. The main reason we cannot accept participants with fewer skills is to avoid injuries in our intensive workshop.
