2021 VIRTUAL SUMMER INTENSIVE

Complexions Summer Intensive Virtual_sq.

With these ever changing times, we are thrilled to offer our Virtual Summer Intensive Program. Study with Complexions Artistic Directors, current and former company members, and esteemed guest faculty.

 

Similar to our in-person Intensives, our Virtual Summer Intensive will focus on a comprehensive whole-body approach to training that fuses Classical and Contemporary dance methods, codified in Complexions’ own stylized technique NIQUE.

 

With a maximum of 30 students per class, each participant receives direct personal feedback from teachers. Each of the five days will start with ’NIQUE or contemporary ballet class that emphasizes coordination, physical ignition, precision, efficiency, and clarity of form. Class will be followed by Repertory or Movement Creation. Each week will focus on a different piece from the Complexions Contemporary Ballet repertory.  

 

As an optional extra add-on, students will have an opportunity to take two contemporary pointe-focused workshops, where students will explore the use of the pointe shoe in a contemporary context, and work on articulation and efficiency in the contemporary ballet style that has been the cornerstone of the Complexions repertory.

We are excited to connect and evolve together with dancers across the US and the World!
