This program is designed for the mature artist, ages 17-24, involved
in the pursuit of higher education. Dancers will have daily technique
in ballet, and will participate in classes focused on ABT repertory,
pointe work, partnering, modern dance, composition, and choreography.
This is a chance for the college dancer to further develop their
artistic talents in a challenging and professional environment,
while intensively training with world-class ABT faculty.
This three-week program will take place at ABT’s 890 Broadway
studios in New York City. Dancers will have access to student tickets
to select ABT performances during the 2013 Metropolitan Opera House
season. The program, headed by Melissa Allen Bowman, Artistic Director
of Summer Intensives, will include renowned ABT faculty and accompanists.
College credit options are available with participating
colleges and universities.
