Young dancers experience an introduction to intensive ballet training during Colorado Ballet Academy’s Young Dancer Workshop. Students work closely with the accomplished leaders of CBA in a mentoring, inclusive environment as they participate in daily ballet classes and complimentary classes including character, modern, jazz, classical choreography and interactive artist talks. YDW will emphasize growth in technique, artistry and dance phrasing. Each session will have a fundamental focus and will concentrate specifically on adagio, turns, petit allegro, grand allegro, artistry and step sequencing. Sessions will culminate with a short performance.
