The Young Dancer Workshop is an introduction to more serious summer dance training for students ages 9 to 12. Students will receive a daily ballet class along with additional classes in character, modern, choreography and pre-pointe/jumping for boys. Each day will wind down with a lecture series, stretch and conditioning class or dance film. Classes are held in our gorgeous new state-of-the-art facilities on Santa Fe Drive in Downtown Denver. Each session will conclude with a showing in our Black Box Theater. No audition is required for the Young Dancer Workshop, but students ages 9-10 must have a minimum of 2 years of ballet training and students 11-12 must have at least 3 years of prior ballet training to be eligible for the program.
