From 14 through 25 July 2014, the fourth edition of the Amsterdam International Summer School, an in-depth summer course for ballet dancers between 15 and 21 years of age, takes place in the studios of Het Muziektheater Amsterdam (home to the Dutch National Ballet and De Nederlandse Opera).
More information about the programme in 2014 and guest teachers will follow soon!
This intensive 2 week course is organized by the National Ballet Academy in collaboration with the Dutch National Ballet.
The course will focus on classical technique i.e., lessons in technique for girls and boys, variations, pas-de-deux, pointe technique (girls), men’s coaching and variations. Students will also follow lessons in contemporary, Dutch National Ballet repertoire and a unique opportunity will be offered for working on a new choreography with one of Dutch National Ballet’s rising choreographers. The course will be concluded with a studio presentation to an invited audience and parents.
