Arch Ballet Training Intensive 

August 5th - 11th

  • $550 Early-bird by March 31
  • $600 General


Rooted with the philosophy of Artistic Director Sheena Annalise, dancers are invited to explore a new way of thinking about ballet, body articulation, and personal artistry in a one week training program that offers an unparalleled experience in Arch Ballet Technique pedagogy and repertoire.

Emphasis is placed on harvesting the solid technical underpinning of classical training to cultivate innovative movement. Designed for professional and pre-professional dancers, the curriculum values artistic risk-taking and tenacious work ethic for dancer’s to realize their full potential. Throughout the intensive dancers will learn Arch Ballet Technique starting at the barre, contemporary pas de deux, company repertoire, and Sheena Annalise’s trial and error choreography process in the creation of a new work. All participants will take part in a culmination performance of the program, and select dancers will have the opportunity to perform with the company outside of the training hours.
