Former Principal Dancer and R.A.D. Examiner Isabel Yuan, will teach Ballet in the Multidisciplinary Intensive Week 2, at Caulfield School of Dance August 31 to September 4.
This summer, we are returning to the use of our beautiful facility with new health and safety measures that include disinfecting between classes and each student having twice the recommended Distancing space in classes.
Each week of the Multidisciplinary Summer Intensive gives dancers daily classes in key dance disciplines. There will also be classes in conditioning instructed by the teachers in their fields of expertise such as Pilates, Progressing Ballet Technique, etc. The faculty includes international guest artists. More information on other Summer faculty is posted on this website and our Facebook page.
The Multidiscipline Intensive Weeks are for three levels:
Junior, Ages 7+ (Suggested 1 – 3 years experience):
Intermediate, Ages 9+ (Suggested 3+ years experience):
Advanced, Ages 12+ (Intermediate or higher R.A.D. Ballet level and/or Advanced Tap).
