JULY 8- AUGUST 2, 2024

Why dance at ECB this summer?


ECB offers an affordable, high-quality summer intensive training experience for students (ages 13+) 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 supplemental classes. The weekly schedule consists of 6 hours of dancing per day, Monday thru Friday, with a 15-minute break and a 30-minute lunch break.


There is a limited amount of space per week! Acceptance into this program is at the sole discretion of the artistic staff. 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.
