Eglevsky Ballet Announces Summer Intensive Classes

In 2015, the Eglevsky Ballet engaged Maurice B. Curry as its new Executive Artistic Director. In two years, the Eglevsky Ballet has doubled the enrollment in its dance academy and now boasts ten educators and a resident artist. A full slate of year-round ballet classes and workshops are offered for students ranging from three years of age to 20 years old. "When I started here at Eglevsky, I thought it would take us at least four years to get to where we are today," says Curry. "We are growing by leaps and bounds!"

In addition to the year-round ballet classes, Eglevsky Ballet offers several Summer Intensive Programs for serious students: Ballet (ages 11-20); Ballet & Contemporary (ages 11-20); and Young Dancers (ages 7-10). Auditions for the summer intensives will be held in numerous cities including Philadelphia, PA; Dallas, TX; Atlanta, GA; Washington, DC; New York City, NY; Columbia, SC; Charlotte; NC; Baltimore, MD; Norfolk, VA; Pensacola, FL; and Bethpage, NY.
