Serendipity Posted December 27, 2008 Report Share Posted December 27, 2008 I'm so pleased! It's for 3 weeks and is about 5 hours (plus an hour for lunch) - includes ballet, pointe, one session of pas de deux at the intermediate level (2 at the advanced but I'm not going into that one!), physical exercise for dancers and repertoire. There are two levels that start at two different times - one's intermediate and the other's advanced. Ours is the earlier one but not earlier than 10:30 so I can actually SLEEP. It's a bit of a hike - about a 45 min drive but for three weeks just before Richmond might well be worth it. If my regular school doesn't have the intensive this year, or I am unsure of the teacher (not sure who's teaching and am not willing to take chances this year), then I'll do the 3 week one at this other school. The cost is actually about the same - the intensive at my regular school for me is 2 hours a day for 6 weeks (I don't do the rest of the curriculum, just ballet). The one at the other school is 3 weeks but 5 hours a day and much more comprehensive. Since our current school finishes late in June, the intensive for the new one starts in mid-July and ends at the end of July, and Richmond starts (hopefully for me!) the first week of August, it really works time-wise. I only would want a few classes between the end of term and the start of the intensive. I might ask my teacher for a twice a week private lesson for that, plus gym. We shall see. It's so rare to find a school that will allow adults into their intensives. I'm so excited!! :-) S. Quote Link to comment
