Cuban Classical Ballet Summer Intensive (Ages 7-23)

Ballet Hispanico 


Led by a former principal dancer with the Cuban National Ballet, our Cuban Classical Ballet Summer Intensive challenges students to diversify and strengthen their dance education at one of the nation’s leading training programs.

 

2016 CUBAN CLASSICAL BALLET SUMMER INTENSIVE
JULY 18 - AUGUST 5, 2016



Ballet Hispanico's one-of-a-kind Cuban Classical Ballet Summer Intensive employs the Cuban methodology to train pre-professional dancers. Director of Classical Training Caridad Martinez, a former principal dancer with the Cuban National Ballet who trained with the legendary Alicia and Fernando Alonso, supervises the program. Under her guidance, students will develop the athleticism, passion and grace Cuban dancers are most famous for. They will also have the opportunity to work with special guest artists and learn the intricacies that make Cuban dancers so sought-after by leading companies around the world.

An accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Dance (NASD), Ballet Hispanico has a 45-year history as a leader in dance and cultural excellence in New York City and around the world. At our Cuban Classical Ballet Summer Intensive, students will improve their technique, gain exposure to Ballet Hispanico and guest artists, and experience all that the dance capital of the world has to offer.

Note that Ballet Hispanico is unable to provide housing for Summer Intensive students.
