Marshall Ellis Dance School will offer three summer intensives for dancers in Central Florida and beyond: 2 three-week ballet intensives, and a one-week dance intensive focusing on ballet, contemporary, lyrical and jazz. Other class styles will be offered during the program.
These rigorous training programs are designed for motivated dancers ages 10-14, and aspiring pre-professional and early-career dancers ages 15-21. Attendees will take daily classes in ballet and other techniques, plus choreography progressively integrated through The Fusion Powered by ME Program. This is a unique opportunity for committed dancers to refine their skills in multiple forms, broaden their dance vocabulary and grow as artists.
On National Dance Day – July 28, 2018 – ME Dance School will host a live performance at ME Theatre. Students who took part in the one-week dance intensive will perform original works and showcase skills they’ve adapted during the program.
Students in the three-week ballet intensives will have an opportunity to perform in a showcase at the end of each session in the ME Theatre on site.
Classes will run from 9am-3pm Daily. Students once enrolled in Summer Intensive will gain access to all night classes offered at Marshall Ellis Dance School.
