Diablo Ballet is pleased to announce its inaugural SUMMER INTENSIVE providing students from age 9 through trainee level, a three week Summer Intensive from July 6 – 24, 2020. The intensive will be on a hybrid schedule half in person and half virtual consisting of two levels: Intermediate and Advanced with a separate half day virtual program for Ballet Level 2 Students. Diablo Ballet has consulted with our company doctors as well as one of the County physicians to ensure we do this in the safest way possible with proper protocols and procedures in place and with a limited and stable number of people in the building together. If County guidelines change as we approach July, we will change to a fully virtual schedule.

The program is designed to give students a deeper understanding of ballet with special classes geared to complement their training including conditioning, The in-studio portion of the intensive will concentrate on technique class, pointe or pre-pointe class, pilates, contemporary and variation classes.  The virtual portion of the intensive will concentrate on character, pantomime, stretch and strength, contemporary and improv classes.  Students will receive training by Diablo Ballet School faculty, including Diablo Ballet Company members and world-renowned teachers and choreographers.  Advanced female students must have at least two years of pointe training. Professional trainees for the 2020– 21 season are selected from the Summer Intensive.
