In Balanchine’s Footsteps: Summer Intensive

Summer Workshops Eastern Connecticut Ballet

(ECB Levels 5-7 or call for placement)

Program Description

Many of today's best ballet dancers - those with versatility, exquisite control, and musicality - are following in the footsteps of the legendary George Balanchine. In the mid-20th century, the choreographer revolutionized classical ballet, and his legacy lives on in the world’s major companies and training schools. Our Artistic Director Gloria Govrin provides the creative vision for our program. There’s no better way for a young dancer to learn than from master teachers who were either students of “Mr. B” or members of companies that embraced his choreography. Under the guidance of these exceptional artists and teachers, students will discover their own artistic styles while becoming part of a living legacy.

Intensive Highlight: Broadway Styles & Modern

American musical stage professional Mary Ann Lamb will introduce the high energy of Broadway dance theater through technique and repertory classes. Our students also will learn the powerful technique of the renowned Modern dance choreographer Paul Taylor from a member of his company, Francisco Graciano.
