Ballet Technique

Ballet classes during the summer are designed to maintain the development from the past year while offering a challenge and push for higher quality in a dancer’s ballet technique. Inspiring new growth and refinement in artistry and technique, dancers will learn from a handful of instructors from ECB’s Core Faculty who will offer sound, yet diverse, teaching and training, giving students a well-rounded education.



Dancers are called to have the knowledge and ability to perform in many other styles than ballet alone.

Contemporary holds inspiration from Modern, Jazz, and other forms of dance. This offers the students a great opportunity to learn how to adapt and move in a different style, attitude, and atmosphere outside of ballet. Contemporary also helps in the building and development of a dancer's self-expression and artistry in movement.



Variation class is structured to offer dancers the opportunity to learn choreography from beautiful, challenging, and even fun classic and famous ballet productions.  Students get to work on how to build their character for the role they are performing and how to carry and project that character.  In addition to performance quality, dancers will also discover more intricate and complex steps that will build all-around performance awareness and strength.



Education in stretching, strengthening, and mobility is very important to a dancer's health and quality of movement. Conditioning class provides guidance on how to properly execute and benefit from exercises that will push dancers without harming their bodies as well as deeper stretch positions that will help them improve their flexibility and range of motion.


Learn about topics ranging from ballet history (did ballet really start in France?!), injury prevention, nutrition, and pointe introduction!
