Cincinnati Ballet’s Collegiate Intensive is an intimate training program produced in partnership with the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music to serve the unique needs of serious dancers in pursuit of higher education. For 6 weeks, students train with world-renowned guest faculty as well as Cincinnati Ballet’s artistic leadership and CCM’s Undergraduate Dance Department faculty. With a foundational focus on ballet technique and performance, students also develop versatility in contemporary, modern and composition. One-on-one mentoring and coaching are hallmarks of the program as students focus on careers or graduate programs upon college graduation. Participants are considered for candidacy for the Otto M. Budig Academy’s Professional Training Division and year-round programs.
Students must be 18 years old by the program start date to be eligible.
