Curriculum includes intermediate and advanced level of study of ballet technique, pointe, jazz,and modern dance. Special classes are offered in Russian character dance, stage make-up, classical variations, conditioning, and choreography. Elementary workshops and adult classes are also available and are held at the Ballet Arts Studios. The faculty consists of Ballet Tucson’s outstanding artistic staff and professional dancers.

A final performance will be presented at the close of the workshop at the Stevie Eller Dance Theatre. The performance will take place on Saturday, June 23 at 3:30 pm. This performance features all elementary, intermediate, and advanced students who have attended the entire workshop.
