Description

Ventana Ballet Spring Break Intensive Workshop

Come join Ventana Ballet during Spring Break for a four-day intensive workshop!

Each day will feature a class in Floor Barre and a class in Contemporary Ballet. Participants will have the opportunity to work with multiple professional artists to learn advanced techniques of the Zena Rommett Floor Barre method from a certified instructor. Contemporary Ballet class follows, with a fun and unique twist on the standard classical ballet form, as it collides with contemporary dance styles.

Fee is $200 to participate in the whole workshop, or drop-in ($20 drop-in rate for Floor Barre, and $30 drop-in rate for Contemporary Ballet). Reserve your spot through Eventbrite, or via cash/check made out to Ventana Ballet (see AJ with questions).

Classes are held from 11:30am-1:30pm each day (except Thursday is from 11:45am-1:45pm) at First Street Studio.
