2017 Summer Intensive Auditions
March 5th and March 12th, 2017
The Summer Intensive is a unique opportunity for students ages 9 to adult interested in a focused, comprehensive training program to make technical progress in classical ballet and contemporary dance forms, and repertoire. Classes, led by Ballet Theatre of Maryland’s faculty and guest instructors, feature technique courses, acting seminars, choreography, and mini-workshops.
