Waldorf, MD – 5 DAY CAMP

Not being held in 2017

studio-cooperativeThe focus of this camp is alignment and technique so it’s really great for learning  and perfecting technique. Instead of working on a performance we actually schedule this camp to coincide with the Kennedy Center programing. This year we are going to see American Ballet Theater perform Ashton’s romantic “Cinderella”. This camp is 5 days long with the final day being a half day. It is held at the Studio Cooperative, located at O’Donnell Lake Center in Waldorf, Maryland. This new facility has two sunny studios. On Tuesday evening there is an optional Meet and Greet dinner at 6:30 pm for those who arrive early. Space is limited so we only take about 20 advanced-beginning and intermediate dancers (Levels 2-3B. See Level of Study on our website for a description). A photo of your entire class is included with your tuition.

Program Options

5 hours per day

Morning classes include Elemental Body Alignment System, ballet technique, pointe, men’s technique, pirouettes, and men’s or women’s variations. There are also three afternoon workshops to help you integrate concepts into your technique. Workshop topics vary each year. On Friday, you’ll have the option to perform a variation from class. Add Repertory or pas de deux to this curriculum on your application.
