Olympic Ballet School announces an open audition for its 2016 Summer Intensive. The audition will be held on March 12, 9:45–11:15am at the Olympic Ballet studios housed within the Frances Anderson Center, 700 Main Street in Edmonds 98020, 425-774-7570.

The summer intensive is an exclusive, placement-based program for advanced students looking to further their training in classical ballet, pointe, variations, repertoire, men’s technique, partnering, modern, contemporary, jazz and character dance. Dancers accepted into the program will attend classes five days a week from 10am–5pm, July 5th to July 30th, and have the opportunity to perform in a showcase at the end of the session.

Considered to be the foremost professional ballet school of Snohomish County, Olympic Ballet School is dedicated to giving students a well-rounded dance education largely focused on classical ballet, but also inclusive of other styles of dance.

Under the guidance of Artistic Directors Mara Vinson and Oleg Gorboulev, former leading dancers of Pacific Northwest Ballet and Moscow Classical Ballet, students of Olympic Ballet School have won recognition in the prestigious Youth America Grand Prix international ballet competition, and have been awarded scholarships with Pacific Northwest Ballet School, Boston Ballet School, San Francisco Ballet School, and the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre School, among others.

The Summer Intensive is open to serious students ages 11 and up. Attracting students from as far as Bellingham, Whidbey Island, Bainbridge Island, Bremerton, Mercer Island, Issaquah, and Wenatchee, the program maintains a far-reaching reputation for excellence in classical ballet training.  
The faculty, consisting of current and former professional dancers, guides students through the carefully crafted curriculum while small class sizes ensure individual attention and a nurturing environment conducive to growth.

Aside from the four-week summer intensive for advanced students, Olympic Ballet School also offers a shorter two-week intensive for younger students from July 11th to July 21st. Enrollment for the two-week intensive is also by placement; contact the school to arrange an evaluation. For the youngest students, Olympic Ballet School offers open enrollment camps in Creative Movement, Kinder Ballet, and Level 1 of Classical Ballet Technique, June 27th to June 30th. Registration is open now.

Serious ballet students looking for a memorable summer experience should reserve a spot for Olympic Ballet School’s Summer Intensive Audition. Pre-register by email. A $25 audition fee will apply.
