Professional Division Summer Session
Thank you for your interest in Professional Division Summer Session. Please check back in January 2021 when we announce information for our next session and save your spot at the barre for July 2021.
RWB’s Professional Division Summer Session is considered the second phase of the audition process for entry into RWB’s Professional Division Ballet Academic, Aspirant and Teacher Training Programs. Students complete intensive work in ballet and pointe technique and, depending on their level, pas de deux and variations. In addition to classical training, students receive a comprehensive education in character dance and modern dance. The curriculum is augmented by classes in historical dance, conditioning, music, repertoire, Spanish dance, improvisation, choreography, visual art, dance history, creative movement, nutrition, performance enhancement, and strength-training for male students.
Out of an abundance of caution for our students and staff Summer Session 2020 will look a little different than previous years, but we are excited to launch a version that will follow government safety recommendations and continue to deliver high quality dance education.
New Canadian and International Students: Online Classes
We are dedicated to ensuring dancers are provided with opportunities to continue improving their technique and artistry. We are deeply saddened that we cannot have you in person this year, but have made this decision based on government recommendations along with our organizational reopening strategy.
Join us for 2-3 hours Monday – Friday for ballet, pointe, conditioning as well as elective classes such as character, variations, modern/contemporary and jazz.
The experienced teaching staff at the RWB School, together with talented guest teachers, will inspire students to learn and grow. Summer Session will feature some of our finest ballet instructors and talented guest teachers who are masters of dance genres beyond ballet.
