JUNE 26 - JULY 28

5-Week Summer Intensive for Intermediate & Advanced Dancers

Under the personal guidance of Founder & Director Cynthia Donavin, Classical Ballet Theatre’s excellent faculty, and a number of outstanding summer guest faculty, dancers experience a comprehensive program of classical and contemporary ballet, along with other dance disciplines and supplementary training. Classical Ballet Theatre’s Summer Intensive is a 5-week program with a curriculum that encourages each student’s artistic expression while emphasizing technique, strength, coordination and stamina. 2017 Summer Intensive faculty include Cynthia Donavin, Kathy Beyer, Meghan Rudorfer, Tara Henderson, as well as numerous nationally acclaimed guest faculty.


All students are required to have had at least four years of ballet technique. Classical Ballet Theatre faculty determine placement of each student during their first technique class.
