Summer 2016


Summer at Geiger Ballet 2016

 

~Ballet is a year round avocation~

It is vitally important that you seriously consider having your child attend ballet over the 11 weeks of summer!  Just because academic school is over in June, it does not mean ballet is over!! The students who study the full five weeks each summer make great strides. The human body requires constant repetition to achieve mastery.

 

~Summer ballet is fun and focused~

Summer is an excellent time for increasing the hours a student dances. A child is able to focus more completely on their dance without the demands and additional commitments regular school requires. Plus the warm weather is an added benefit contributing to the elongation of the muscles.

 

~Progress is made in the summer~

Summer study is necessary when considering promotions come fall. A student who does not attend a minimum of three weeks summer study will most likely have to return to their previous level. This insures that the student has the opportunity to review the previous year’s material and build back proper strength. Ballet study is year round.
