Masters Week Summer Intensive-August 17-20, 2020 (pending COVID)

Ann Parsley School of Dance will be holding a week of master’s classes for ages 8 and up sponsored by the Macomb Ballet Company. The workshop will be held from August 17-20. We will be bringing in guest teachers from around the country to share their knowledge and skills with our dancers. Dancers will sharpen their skills and build their technique in dance styles including ballet, partnering, modern, jazz and lyrical. 

Ballet Boot Camp-August 25-27, 2020 (pending COVID)

For ages 8 and up, this 3 day mini intensive is designed to bridge the gap between the academic year and summer classes and to help prepare dancers for auditions. The boot camp will focus on body conditioning, ballet technique, pointe work, stage presentation, quality of movement and audition tips. Dancers should have several years of ballet experience. Students will have the opportunity to train with the directors of the Macomb Ballet Company. 

Private Lessons

Summer is a great time for private lessons. Private lessons are meant to supplement a dancer’s regular training. Whether you want to develop your artistry or fine-tune your technique, working one-on-one with a teacher can help take your dancing to the next level. Please email to set up a private lesson. Rates for private lessons are available online.
