Elements Ballet 2018-2019 Intensive Training Programs

Become THE FIFTH ELEMENT with Elements Ballet through four new workshops and our Summer Intensive training program!

Study AIR this Fall, WATER this Winter, EARTH next Spring, and FIRE next Summer, then complete your experience by attending our TWO-WEEK Summer Intensive

AIR (Sunday, November 25, 2018, 12-6pm at Dovetail Dance Studio): This one-day workshop will prepare you for the upcoming season by focusing on technique and body-awareness. A full day of barre and center work with special attention to length, rotation, and extension, plus integration of class into choreography that highlights balance and transitions will help you to expand and elongate your movement. 

WATER (Sunday, January 6, 2019, 12-6pm at Dovetail Dance Studio): Warm up in these cold months by keeping your body, mind, and spirit moving with the fluid innovation of water class. Learn innovative tools and engage in games to keep your inspiration fresh through guided improvisation, partnering, exploration, and ambiance.

EARTH ***CANCELED*** (Sunday, April 14, 2018, 12-6pm at Dovetail Dance Studio): Get ready to connect with the Earth, your own core, and sweat it out. Classes include: yoga, floor barre, stretch and strength, calisthenics, and ballet-based conditioning. The day culminates in a group choreography session with live drummers.

FIRE (Sunday, June 16, 2019, 12-6pm at Extensions Dance Center): Allow your dancing to be truly expressive, aggressive, and larger than life. Classes include quick jumps and turns, choreography featuring our tenacious style, and techniques to improve your performance energy and quality. Auditions will be held to cast dancers in an original short film created that day!

Then round out your season at THE FIFTH ELEMENT SUMMER INTENSIVE (Monday - Friday, July 22 - August 2, 2019, 10am-5pm at Extensions Dance Center) where you’ll discover a deeper understanding of how each element can uniquely enhance your development as an artist. Experience two weeks of training, growing, exploring, and inventing with our signature style and esteemed faculty. Classes include: Ballet, conditioning, floor barre, yoga, guided improvisation, contemporary choreography, and PT/nutrition. New repertory will be created and performed by students alongside the Elements Ballet main company at our summer concert, The Fifth Element (Friday, August 2, 2019, 7:30pm at Extensions Dance Center).
