Summer Intensive Auditions - The Washington Ballet

With cutting edge technology, best-in-class ballet masters and instructors, and a curriculum 75 years perfected, The Washington School of Ballet sets a new standard in ballet education. Our 2021 Summer Intensive provides students in the Upper Level (ages 12+) with the option to either train fully in-studio or in a virtual format. The Washington School of Ballet Summer Intensive gives students from around the world the opportunity to study for five weeks with our acclaimed faculty including Artistic Director Julie Kent and Professional Division Head Xiomara Reyes. Men’s division classes are led by Rinat Imaev and Damien Johnson.

Dates: June 21– July 23, 2021
Class Times: 9:30AM-4:00PM (approximately)
Tuition for in-studio attendance: $3,000

Housing will not be offered for those students attending classes in person. Our staff can make suggestions for safe housing options. Students 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Classes include classical ballet technique, pointe work, variations, men’s technique, flamenco, jazz, contemporary, Pilates, and student choreography for both studio and virtual class groups.

Students who choose the virtual option will be participating in the same class as the studio students. Our faculty will have state of the art mobile equipment to enable them to see all students both virtual and in-studio at the same time. Virtual students may also see the studio students and be a part of the group discussions and seminars. The 5-week Upper-Level program will culminate in a recorded performance to be shared with family and friends for both virtual and studio students.

Levels are not determined at the time of audition; all students will attend placement classes on the first day of the program. While the classes will be arranged by age, placement is primarily based on technical ability and appropriate strength for syllabus material.

Students are accepted into The Washington School of Ballet Summer Intensive by either a Zoom audition and video audition.
