French Immersion:

Ballet, Ballet Stories & Costume Making

July 10th-21st 9:00-3:00 or 1/2 Day 9:00-12:00 Age 4-10

Extended day available until 6pm*


Each day from 9:00-12:00, the program will be a French language immersion experience.  Beginning with a ballet class conducted by a native French speaking dancer, and with native speaker classroom assistants.  The children will then have ballet history and story hour where they will learn the stories, composers, and history of the great classical ballets (Firebird, Coppelia, Sleeping Beauty etc.).  They will hear the stories told in both French and English.

After ballet class and story hour, they will have a chance to act out parts of the ballets.  Followed by craft and costume making classes, where they will design and decorate costumes to be worn at the program's ending presentation.  They will also do activities to reinforce the information they've learned, such as paint different scenes from the ballets they've studied.

There will be a break for lunch and the 2nd half of the day will be predominantly taught in English and will be a combination of musical theater, rehearsals, craft & tap classes.

As inheritors of an arto form moving forward yet firmly rooted in the history and culture of France, our students are simultaneously the past, present, and future of classical ballet.  In this spirit, we at International Ballet Institute seek to develop each student's body and mind while instilling a deep love and respect for their role as a dance artist in history.
