Our Summer Dance Intensive offers a unique and rigorous experience for motivated dancers. Students will be immersed in professional technique classes in ballet, tap, jazz and hip hop.
We believe a solid foundation in technique is extremely important for any dancer. Proper technique enables students to execute movements and steps precisely. Ballet is the foundation for all forms of dance; technique learned in ballet classes can be applied to skills learned in jazz, tap, hip hop and musical theatre.
Principal Dancer for the Oklahoma City Ballet, Mr. Jonathan Batista, will teach the ballet portion of the intensive. Mr. Batista is a graduate of the English National Ballet School and also attended The Royal Ballet School. He has performed as a Guest Artist in North America, South America and Europe. As a dancer he has performed with numerous ballet companies, including: English National Ballet, The National Ballet of Canada, Boston Ballet, Cincinnati Ballet and Milwaukee Ballet.
