The Jillana School is an intensive summer program, directed by Jillana,
authorized teacher of the Balanchine Technique® & Balanchine Style®, and is fashioned
for the young pre-professional, ages 11-17.
Balanchine Technique® will be stressed
in all technique, pointe, variation, and repertory classes. There will also be instruction in modern,
choreography, pilates and dance studies. Excerpts and variations from Balanchine Ballets will
be taught and some performed at the student performance (the last Friday of the session).
Why the Balanchine Technique®?
Most of the world's ballet companies have one or more Balanchine ballets in their repertory.
This technique enables a dancer to move quickly, a requirement for executing the Balanchine choreography.
Knowledge of the Balanchine Technique® and Style® will benefit students pursuing a career in dance,
whether in a company or as a teacher.
Merit scholarships available.
