14th – 19th August 2017
Summer school at the Giselle Academy offers students a unique opportunity to work with some of the performing arts industry’s finest choreographers. The week involves technique classes in various subjects, followed by rehearsals to prepare for the exciting end of week performance.
Summer school is one of the best ways to prepare students who aspire to be professional dancers one day, and in one short week, exposes them to the diverse techniques, which are necessary to succeed in the performing arts industry. For the younger students, summer school is a fun filled, educational experience where new friendships are made and new skills are learned.
The end of week performance showcases the student’s hard work and really it is a testament to the high standards of the Giselle Academy teaching team!
