Toledo Ballet 2019 Summer Intensives

The Toledo Ballet Summer Intensives are rewarding, weeklong ballet or theater experiences designed for students looking to refine their skills and be among peers who are also passionate about the arts. Each intensive focuses on developing the whole artist and offers high quality instruction taught by renowned master teachers with extensive ballet and stage experience. A week of intensives includes 4-5 hours of daily instruction.

Students will be immersed in a positive cultural environment where they will engage in all facets of performance. Each summer intensive is dedicated to nurturing the growth of the individual student in a group class setting. Intensives culminate in a studio performance at the Ballet where students will demonstrate their progress and growth.
