These chilly temperatures and frosty January mornings have us dreaming about summer. While we love everything Buffalo has to offer in the summertime, from concerts at Canalside to the festivals and street fairs dotting the city, our favorite place to spend the season is, of course, in the ballet studio! We are exciting to announce that we are now accepting applications for our 2016 summer ballet programs.
Five Week Intensive: June 27 – July 29 (ages 10+)
Two Week Workshop: July 18 – July 29 (ages 8 – 12)
Neglia Ballet’s prestigious summer intensive welcomes students from all over the world to experience world-class ballet training right here in Buffalo, NY. Take your technique and artistry to new heights with personalized attention from our accomplished faculty, which includes some of the world’s most sought-after ballet instructors. Classical ballet technique provides the foundation of the program, however students also benefit from daily classes in pointe, variations, contemporary dance, character dance and Pilates.
Not from Buffalo? No problem. Out-of-town students have the option of staying in housing provided by Buffalo Seminary in Elmwood Village, one of Buffalo’s most desirable neighborhoods. Meals, resident chaperones, daily transportation to the Neglia studio are included for all dorm-ing students. Students have evenings and weekends free to take advantage of Buffalo’s thriving shopping districts, beautiful parks and free summer time events. Special trips to nearby attractions including Niagara Falls and Darien Lake are also offered on the weekends!
Few other programs in the region provide such a high level of classical ballet training while also fostering a friendly, supportive and non-competitive atmosphere. To ensure that each student received individualized attention, the program size is extremely limited.
Two week workshop is open to students of all levels, ages 8-12. The five-week program is reserved for serious ballet students age 10 and older.
We hope to dance with you this summer!
