Ages 12 -15
126 W Rector Suite 120, San Antonio, TX 78216

 

The Dance Center of San Antonio is thrilled to partner with Houston Ballet Academy to bring their Summer Workshop to San Antonio! Houston Ballet Artistic Director Stanton Welch and Academy Interim Director Vicki Attard have announced that, in an addition to their 6-week summer program in Houston, the company will also be holding a 2-week summer workshop here in San Antonio. The workshop will run from July 2-14, 2018, Monday-Saturday, and is open to intermediate students ages 12-15. Classes will be taught by Ms. Vicki Attard, Houston Ballet Academy Interim Director and Houston Ballet Soloist, Christopher Coomer. The workshop will focus on classes in classical ballet technique, pointe, character, repertoire and contemporary dance. In addition, optional master classes and teacher workshops will be open to the general public and workshop participants to enroll and attend on Sundays.

 

“I am so excited about our new two-week San Antonio Summer workshop,” says Ms. Attard. “Each student in attendance will be challenged through a variety of engaging classes with an emphasis on the foundational principles of pure, classical ballet technique. I am also delighted to welcome the teachers of the San Antonio and surrounding areas to my Sunday master classes, a wonderful opportunity to share knowledge and develop new relationships.”

 

This is an amazing opportunity for our students to receive world class training right here in our home studio! We strongly encourage that all dancers to take advantage of this unique workshop to hone their skills this summer.
