About

The Summer Intensive is designed to develop advanced-level technique and artistry.  Selected dancers will experience the environment of a professional performing company.  Within the 5 week intensive, dancers will take daily ballet technique classes, pointe, variations, partnering, contemporary and stretch conditioning Monday - Friday, while preparing a full classical production of Swan Lake. The production will take place in the Historic Polk Theater in Lakeland, Florida. All dancers participating in the summer program will perform in Swan Lake.

Performance/acting/awareness/coordination on stage is 50% part of every dancer's training. It is a skill that is trained separately from daily technique classes.  Character development takes weeks if not months of private one on one coaching.  Russian Ballet Orlando specializes in all of the above.  

There are three (3) Intensive programs (starting age 10+). Acceptance is by in-studio or video audition only:

  • Professional

  • Preparatory

  • Primary

Russian Ballet Orlando does not place dancers by age, but by skills and abilities.  ​Dancers are placed in the appropriate level based on their audition performance.  

Week 1:  Dancers will be taking all of the below classes and will be under close observation for casting.  You will learn and practice all the main classical male and female variations. Casting for Swan Lake will be revealed at the end of the week.

Weeks 2 - 4 will include guest Artistic Directors teaching master classes and observing and assisting with the rehearsal process.

Week 2: Dancers will be taking all of the below classes and will be learning all the corps-de-ballet choreography of the performance.  Private coaching will begin for soloist and principal roles.  

Week 3/4:  Dancers will be taking all of the below classes, rehearsing their parts and working on performance scenes.  Scenes fuse the production together to tell the story of the ballet, and are one of the most challenging parts of every production. 

Week 5:  The last week is the most exciting one, where we finalize the performance and perfect the final details.  Run throughs and dress rehearsals will take place all week long.
