The Summer Intensive



Southern California Ballet’s newly appointed Artistic Director Martha Leebolt has programmed an exceptional training plan from July 10 to 28 for dancers aged nine years to pre-college. The international award winning ballerina will teach and inspire the dancers to higher heights with daily classes in ballet, repertoire, conditioning and stretching complimented by other master teachers of jazz, contemporary and character. Clinics will teach techniques for better turns and jumps; applying stage make-up; preparing and maintaining pointe-shoes; and making a ballet bun in your hair.
