Full-Day, Full-Week Intensives
for Preprofessional Dancers
The Project Ballet Full-Day Intensive is primarily for dancers placed in Level 4 and up for the 2023-2024 school year. Students will have a daily ballet class, as well as classes in pointe, men's, variations, repertory, contemporary dance, and stretch/conditioning. Dancers will be divided into two levels each week. Levels will be newly divided up each week based on the demographic of students enrolled for that particular week and the best use of studio capacity limits for that particular group of students. Students will receive nearly 30 hours of instruction, weekly. Classes will be taught by Project Ballet faculty and alumni.
The full-day intensive will be held from 9:30am to 3:30pm, daily. Please drop-off dancers no more than 15 minutes early.
The Project Ballet Full-Day Intensive is $350 per week. (Currently enrolled PB dancers who are returning for the 2023-2024 school year may use a discount code to receive $50 off their enrollment, per week.) A minimum $50 deposit is due at registration. Payment plan options will be available at check-out. Tuition is non-refundable. Tuition cannot be transferred, except in the case of documented illness or injury documented by a doctor's note. If a doctor's note must be produced by 4:00pm on the Friday prior to the Monday of the intensive week starting, then summer intensive tuition can be transferred into account credit to be used for future classes.
The full-day intensive is geared for dancers who have been placed in Project Ballet Levels 4, 5 and Advanced for the 2023-2024 school year. New or guest students should contact the Artistic Director (email@example.com) to arrange for a virtual or in-person level placement evaluation.
Students must pay for the entire week, however students will be permitted to miss days/partial days if they are ill, injured, have a schedule conflict, etc. Please make sure to communicate your absence to the front desk via an ABSENTEE FORM. Please note that Project Ballet students have a minimum attendance requirement that must be met, and if absence prevents them from meeting this requirement, they will be required to enroll in an equivalent course of private lessons. See the section below, entitled "Minimum Attendance Requirement".
Minimum Attendance Requirement
Project Ballet students placed in Levels 4 and 5 must attend a minimum of three weeks of summer intensive. Advanced students must attend four weeks. The full-day intensive satisfies one week of this summer requirement. Partial-day, partial-week intensives satisfies 0.5 weeks of this requirement. Dancers who fail to meet this attendance requirement, due to schedule conflicts, illness, injury, etc. will be required to enroll in an equivalent course of ten private lessons per intensive week missed, or two private lessons per intensive day missed.
