JULY 12 - AUGUST 6, 2021

Why dance at ECB this summer?


ECB offers an affordable, high-quality training experience for students seeking a rigorous and well-rounded approach to improving their technique and artistry. Ballet and pointe technique classes include live piano accompaniment. Our unique 4-week program includes jazz, modern, contemporary, improvisation, choreography, seminars, and other holistic somatic approaches. Each day starts with a 2-hour ballet technique class followed by additional classes. The weekly schedule consists of 6.5 hours of dancing, Monday thru Friday, with a 15-minute break and a 30-minute lunch break.


There are only 16 in-person spots per group: Advanced (ages 13+) and Intermediate (ages 13+). Students will be placed in a group that best suits their age, experience, and ability. Level placement is at the sole discretion of the Artistic Director. Past guest faculty include professional dancers from Pacific Northwest Ballet, Oregon Ballet Theatre, Joffrey Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, San Francisco Ballet, Whim W'him, and many more.
