The Collegiate Summer Intensive
This program is designed for the mature artist, ages 17-24, involved in the pursuit of higher education. Dancers will have daily technique in ballet and will participate in classes focused on ABT repertory, pointe work, partnering and modern dance. This is a chance for the dancers to further develop their artistic talents in a challenging and professional environment, while intensively training with world-class ABT faculty.

This three-week program will take place at ABT’s 890 Broadway studios in New York City. Dancers will have access to student tickets to select ABT performances during the 2016 Metropolitan Opera House season. The program, headed by Artistic Coordinator Ethan Brown, will include renowned ABT faculty and accompanists.
