Los Angeles Dance Academy Prepares Again to Host the Prestigious International Dance Event
LOS ANGELES: California DanceArts dance academy, located in La Canada, north of downtown LA, is signing up dance students for the first of their auditions, beginning in March, for their Los Angeles International Ballet Intensive (http://www.caldancearts.com). This year’s program will run from July 9th to the 28th, with attending students getting the chance to train with an internationally renowned lineup of instructors and exposure to international opportunities through California DanceArts’ Global Ballet Workshops. Limited attendance has been stipulated, and auditions will continue Saturday’s through May.
The three week Intensive will cover a curriculum of dance education spanning classical and contemporary ballet, pointe, variations, Pas de duex, conditioning and MPT (Maor Placement Technique) and Aerial Ballet, with the final day culminating in a performance by the dancers. The instructors this year have danced with such companies as the New York City Ballet, the American Ballet Theatre, the Joffrey Ballet, the San Francisco Ballet, and more; and dancers will also receive instruction from California DanceArts’ Founder and Director, Ms. Erin Holt.
Ms. Holt stated the following: “We’re very pleased to again be hosting the Los Angeles Ballet Intensive for serious students this summer, and we extend a warm welcome to those instructors rejoining the Intensive as well as those joining us for the first time. It is truly a whole different class of program, a rigorous and exacting experience that is unforgettable. Most dancers who have reached this level are already looking to prepare for a career in dance, and the Intensive provides both the level of technical mastery needed and the diverse opportunities for dancers ready for the international stage. It is our privilege to present this year’s Los Angeles International Ballet Intensive.”
