I am excited and proud to start the Ambridge Performing Arts Academy Professional Summer intensive Dance program at the Ambridge High School. The 3 week program will allow every student to be challenged through a comprehensive curriculum that has been designed with myself and the various summer dance faculty members that will be teaching classes throughout the course in Ballet Technique, Pointe, Jazz, Modern , Variations , Contemporary Partnering and Rehearsals. College dance credits will be available for students that are juniors or seniors if they choose to apply.
The 201 summer faculty has been selected based on their professional qualifications of their own careers Each of the faculty shares the same belief’s of teaching that, through individual corrections for each of the students will only improve on their technical strength and abilities to reach their full potential at the end of the 3 week program
At the conclusion of the summer program each student will perform in a Modern, Jazz and Pointe piece at the dance festival “ Fete de La Danse “ Joining the festival will include various Performing Groups and University’s dance departments throughout Pennsylvania . Given the students a rare opportunity of working and sharing the same passion with other young artists and an opportunity to be seen by different Directors and choreographers
On behalf of the faculty of the summer intensive dance program and myself we are looking forward in working with each of you over the summer!
