Comments from 2014 summer participants 
“What did you like best over your time here?”

“Everything. The dancers, students, staff, experience, classes, dancing, schedule, privates.”
“I really loved that I could see my body change after 3 weeks.  I could notice some improvements which means we are doing the proper work .”
“Personal attention and corrections were really helpful.”
“I liked how the program wasn’t trying to teach us how to get higher legs or better turnout. It felt like they were trying to improve our strength and quality of our dancing. Focusing on having proper placement and strength has improved me so much.”

Comments from 2013 summer participants

“The last 5 weeks were exhausting, exciting, and very rewarding”
“It has been an absolutely incredible experience! I’ve learnt so much and met so many great people. It was neat to have the opportunity to see how a company works. It was by far a worthwhile experience.”
“I loved having such long ballet classes because it allowed me to practice and build strength.”
“It was more helpful than any classes/programs I have ever been in.”
“Teachers make sure you have a clear understanding of each correction given, which you can continue to work with even after the program ends and helps you grow as a dancer.”
