Suki Schorer teacher training at the Colburn School working with our ballet faculty.
Suki is a Balanchine Ballerina and master teacher from the School of American Ballet. Having taught many of the Colburn faculty as students over the years , Ms. Schorer was invited to come to our school to provide a 2-day teacher training in the Balanchine style of ballet technique. A refresher for most of our teachers but also an amazing inspiration and refinement of the essential details all teachers should be pursuing in their teaching. We are so lucky to have this amazing and direct link to the original Ballet Master, “Mr. B.”

Is your child missing dance this summer, or just needing to get out of the house and move around? If so, sign up for our two week Story Ballet Workshop today. The workshop begins August 5th.

A new summer tradition to Colburn Dance, the Story Ballet Workshop focuses this summer on The Sleeping Beauty. The regal Lilac Fairy, the evil fairy Carabosse who seeks revenge with a spindle, the mischievous Puss in Boots, the sprightly Songbird Fairy, Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf...these are just some of the magical characters that students will explore in Tchaikovsky's vivid fairy-tale ballet Sleeping Beauty. Students will have a daily technique class appropriately leveled for their ability followed by repertory classes and acting/mime classes to learn steps and storytelling from favorite sections of the ballet.

There will be an in-studio showing on the last day of the second week. This summer workshop is an opportunity for your dancer to learn choreography, develop characters, work on technique and let their imagination soar!

We hope to see you in the studios starting August 5th for the Story Ballet Workshop. Sign up here
