4-WEEK PROGRAM (Ages 12-19)
The EBSI has become a destination for some of the most talented students in North America and abroad. This four-week session is designed for students who wish to experience concentrated exposure to exceptional classical ballet training in New York City – the mecca of the dance-world.
There is great emphasis on our men’s program, focusing on the development of the power, stamina, and masculinity associated with strong male technique.
The curriculum affords an excellent opportunity to greatly improve technical skill, develop greater self awareness and gain a deeper understanding of individual artistic potential.
Students learn from the highly effective teaching methods of master teacher Edward Ellison and his international faculty. They come away with greater strength, precision, confidence, and knowledge — and ultimately experience the power and poetry of the art that is ballet.
**Please know that the summer intensive programs are considered “phase two” in the audition process for acceptance into the year-round Ellison Ballet – Professional Training Program. Participating in one of the summer programs allows Mr. Ellison and the faculty to see how the student works over an extended period of time and allows the student to get first-hand experience of Ellison Ballet, its faculty, and programs, thereby allowing both to determine whether the student and school are a good fit. Auditions for the year-round program are held during the four-week Summer Intensive each year for interested students.
YEAR-ROUND PROFESSIONAL TRAINING PROGRAM (Ages 12-19) September 2021-May 2022
This year-round program is designed to meet the needs of those dedicated students, from across the U.S. and abroad, who seek the highest standard of classical ballet education to prepare for a professional career. Working daily under Edward Ellison’s artistic direction, and his faculty’s careful guidance, students develop the essential skills to fully explore and realize their greatest individual potential. This program is based on the Vaganova method, a system of training that is logical, thought-provoking, inspiring and highly effective. There is great emphasis on our men’s program, focusing on the development of the power, stamina, and masculinity associated with strong male technique.
