A one-week ballet intensive for intermediate and advanced ballet students age 12 and older will be offered by Marcia Keegan on Monday - Thursday, July 9-12, 4:30-7:30 p.m. each day at The Phipps Center for the Arts.

Students will take part in a variety of classes including ballet, pointe, strengthening, and repertoire. Previous pointe experience is highly recommended. If a student does not have pointe experience, soft shoes may be worn for exercises. The week will culminate with a studio demonstration/ performance.
