International Summer Intensive Program 2013

The One on One Summer Intensive Program at the Western Ballet Theatre (July 1 - July 19, 2013) is a three-week program mainly in ballet, with jazz and modern classes, for advanced students aged 16 and up, and for intermediate students of 11 years or more, who are dedicated and disciplined. The program is designed to give young and pre-professional dancers a taste of what a professional dancer should expect while working for a Ballet Company. Refining technique, performance, broadening understanding of various ballet styles and working one on one with professional world-renowned guest artists is our mission. The day begins in one of the studios of WBT with a ballet technique class, followed by pointe, men’s, or classical partnering classes. After lunch, dancers take a modern dance and-or jazz class followed by choreography.

In addition to the daily technique classes, every dancer participates in rehearsals of new choreography and repertoire to challenge and explore the dancers’ talents. These pieces are shown on the final day in a performance at the Teatro Yaguez, Mayaguez.

Students 18 and older may stay in the Howard Johnson Hotel or the Hotel Colonial, both close to the WBT building.

For students 16/17 we will make the arrangements for hosting with our lovely parents living in the Mayaguez area.  

Younger students should arrange to be accompanied by a parent, or stay with relatives in the area.

There is plenty of time to see Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Ocean. On free evenings and weekends, the dancers can choose to attend many activities supervised by the parents and staff of WBT.

The cost of the full program is $450.00, single weeks are $200.00
