DANCE ENSEMBLE AND INTENSIVE TRAINING PROGRAM
INTENSIVE TRAINING PROGRAM (BY AUDITION OR INVITATION IN SPRING 2019)
For students who have shown ability and dedication for more intense training in classical ballet, the Intensive Training Program provides a specialized training environment. Students prepare for ballet examinations in the Cecchetti method of classical ballet. Regular ballet classes are supported with additional classes such as pointe, RWB School Dance Ensemble performance groups, conditioning and modern. Spring auditions are held annually for the Junior and Intermediate levels.
All Intensive Training Program students will participate in the Manitoba Provincial Dance Festival and may have the opportunity to perform in various events throughout the season.
Due to the accelerated nature of this program, a high level of commitment is required from students and attendance is extremely important. Students enrolled in the Intensive Training Program who are involved in other extra-curricular activities outside of dance at the RWB School should be prepared to make this program their priority.
DANCE ENSEMBLE (BY AUDITION OR INVITATION IN SPRING 2019)
The RWB School Dance Ensembles provide a unique opportunity for chosen students to be involved in various performance opportunities throughout the year. Upon a successful audition or invitation process, choreography will be created and then entered in two competitions over the course of the year, in addition to the Manitoba Dance Festival. Ensembles are offered within the Intensive Training Program for ballet, as well as separate Ensemble classes. These classes are offered in jazz, tap and musical theatre.
Alumni have gone onto careers on Broadway, Rainbow Stage and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and have continued their education with Arts Umbrella, Goh Ballet, Alberta Ballet, Boston Conservatory and the School of Contemporary Dancers. Students work closely with RWB School Artistic faculty, including award winning choreographers, and perform new works in festivals and competitions. They may also have exclusive opportunities to perform with other Winnipeg arts and culture organizations.
