Next Step Summer Intensive

Brooklyn Ballet’s Next Step program (ages 8–18) is designed to give each participant a solid technical foundation, based in classical training, building his or her own creative power.

Next Step prepares dancers for professional and high school performing arts auditions and cultivates strong, well-trained, educated and independent dancers. Past summer intensive courses have been taught by Julia K. Gleich, Deborah Lohse, Stephanie Godino, Tammi Shamblin, Kurt Froman, Michaela DePrince and Brooklyn Ballet teachers David Fernandez, Patty Foster, Catherine Green, Nikki Hefko and Meghan Brunke.

In addition to training for greater technical ability, students of Next Step summer dance intensive train for performance. Dancers collaborate with Brooklyn Ballet's Artistic Director Lynn Parkerson and other professional choreographers to perform at the end of each summer program at The Actors Fund Arts Center, in the heart of downtown Brooklyn.

Information on the 2015 Summer Intensive and Audition Dates will be released in January 2015.
