Summer Intensive Ballet Workshop Salzburg, Austria
JUL. 14 - AUG. 11, 2013
4 weeks of an exciting program in Salzburg, Cultural center of Europe
You will be dancing all week, starting your day at 7-8am with a healthy breakfast. You'll be glad to know our personal chef can accommodate all dietary needs. Class will start at 9am, so you can have stretching time in the studios before class. Lunch will be served from 1-2pm. Training will continue from 2-4pm with modern dance, musical jazz, Nacho Duato and more. Then, from 4-6pm we always close out the day with rehearsals. Dinner will be served from 6-7pm and then you have free time.
The studios are open until 10pm. You can use the space for working on your own, get on the bus to explore the city center, or just walk 5 min. to the big shopping mall, EuroPark. There is plenty in the area to see and do for relatives who come to visit.
Friday evenings and Saturdays are your free day. Sundays return to a normal working day. On the 2nd weekend, we have a visiting ballet Bazaar, where you can shop 'til you drop at half price for all ballet accessories. On the 3rd Saturday, we organize a tour to the lakes and mountains (optional.
** Please note that there is no dinner on Friday, and no lunch nor dinner on Saturday at the school, (From our experience, only very few students stay in the school on their free time) There is a kitchenette for students use for light food, and there are plenty of places to eat at EuroPark. Sunday is a normal dancing day including all meals.
At the conclusion of the workshop, SIBA tradition is to have a FUN CLASS, all dressed in funny improvised costumes including the teachers… At the end of the Fun Class, students are presented with a Diploma certificate signed by all the teachers.
This intensive experience is designed to motivate and inspire each student's development as a dancer... you may even discover there is an inner professional dancer "waiting in the wings."
