John Cranko School Summer Intensive

New York | Ages 15-22

The John Cranko School SI NY provides expert Vaganova Technique training for serious ballet students (ages 15 - 22 years). Uniquely, the classical ballet repertoire is expanded to include John Cranko’s neoclassical and contemporary repertoire. The John Cranko School teachers offer rigorous pre-professional ballet training through class instruction, final Showcase, and other related activities. Classes are conducted in English.  

Recognized for preparing dancers for leading European ballet companies, the curriculum is designed to achieve maximum individual progress with a focus on clarity of technique, strength, and musicality. At the completion of the program, participants receive an assessment from John Cranko School’s Teachers.

Dancers from all over the world attend. Residential and day options are available. Participation in non-ballet activities may be limited for day students. The Program’s overall environment is non-competitive and teamwork is emphasized. 

Dancers exhibiting exceptional talent may be recommended for year-round study at the John Cranko School in Stuttgart, Germany.

The showcase gives participants the opportunity to demonstrate the repertoire acquired during the program. While all will be featured, the extent of one’s participation may be based, in part, on merit, in-class participation, and artistic decisions. The schedule of the last week is adjusted to accommodate rehearsals.
