2014 Dance Teacher Training Programs

Peter Martins teaching at SAB taken by Rosalie O'ConnorYEP, ANOTHER UPDATE: The Classical Dance Alliance just announced their 2014 program, added below. Juliette 4/21/14

You know this blog is really dedicated to all those hardworking students out there, but all you teachers out there like me are still students too, right? A dancer’s learning never ends! For all my fellow teachers then, here’s a new list I’ve come up with of upcoming summer training for teachers in 2014. There’s also a few longer-term programs on the list. For any professional dancers or dancers over the age of 18, technique programs for you were included in the 2014 summer intensives list article from last month. The programs I’m listing here are specifically for teaching dancers how to train others. Best wishes to all my readers for the New Year!

download

Well. Such as it is, here is your 2014 Summer Intensives Auditions List (last updated 2/10/14) including 390 high quality programs complete with direct links, dates and age restrictions! It’s actually not as complete as I would like with some of the dates, but more schools than usual are behind in updating their site so I’ll be updating this list as I receive more information. Audition season is already well underway, so merde to all!

And as usual here’s my list of a few SIs, in no particular order, with strong reputations that you may want to put at the top of your list.

School of American Ballet

American Ballet Theatre

Ellison Ballet Academy

Bolshoi Ballet Academy

San Francisco Ballet School

Boston Ballet School

Pacific Northwest Ballet School

Chautauqua Institution

Kaatsbaan

Harid Conservatory

Miami City Ballet School

French Academie of Ballet

The Rock School 

Please send me a message if you encounter any broken links. As always, if you have any questions about particular SIs, please refer to Ballet Talk for Dancers, where you can create a free account and peruse first-hand reviews by dancers and parents.

P.S. I will be posting a separate list of Teacher Training programs in the next couple weeks, so teachers who have requested that: I hope to publish that before year end.

HAPPY WINTER!
