BOCA BALLET THEATRE’S SUMMER INTENSIVE WORKSHOP 2017 IS GREAT SUCCESS

Boca Raton – Boca Ballet Theatre extends gratitude to all who supported the Summer Intensive Workshop and Performance, featuring renowned artistic directors, and culminating in Brilliant Summer a mixed repertory concert where Boca Ballet Theatre will present an interesting and exciting blend of classical and contemporary pieces. La Source, through the Balanchine Trust featuring Jennifer Lauren and Kleber Rebello both principal dancers with Miami City Ballet; David Parsons’ comedic contemporary masterpiece The Envelope; Louisville Ballet dancer and Boca native Sanjay Saverimuttu returns to premier a work he choreographed for 18 dancers and Graduation Ball choreographed by Co-Artistic Director Dan Guin.

The five week intensive program, which requires audition based approval, provides the opportunity for students to excel in technique, composure, classical purity, and individual artistic development in a professional atmosphere, with the benefit of individual attention from instructors.  The faculty was comprised of top Artistic Directors from around the country, including Douglas Martin of American Repertory Ballet; Victoria Morgan of Cincinnati Ballet; Adam Sklute of Ballet West and Gil Boggs of Colorado Ballet.

The workshop also featured several special classes with guest instructors: jazz classes with Jimmy Locust, a professional dancer and choreographer; Dennis Lue, a Boca Ballet Theatre instructor taught modern pulling from his many years on Broadway; Larry Albright, an educator in the art of hip hop movement and culture; Sara Smith Hill, Boca Ballet Theatre alum and formerly with American Ballet Theatre and modern taught by Demetrius Klein, professional dancer and choreographer. The students also enjoyed several Pilates classes with local instructors.

The Summer Intensive students got an extra added bonus this year when the Balanchine Trust sent Repetiteur, Diana White former Soloist with New York City Ballet who personally picked and rehearsed the summer intensive students chosen to perform in La Source.  And Parsons Dance sent Repetiteur, Jaime Martinez, who has danced every role in The Envelope, rehearsed with the students he chose to be in The Envelope.
