State Street Ballet: Training


Summer Intensive

June 25 – July 20, 2018 in Santa Barbara, CA

State Street Ballet’s Summer Intensive is for serious ballet students ages 12-21. Classes include ballet technique, pointe, pas de deux, modern, jazz, character, hip-hop and strength-building. We provide students with the opportunity to learn and perform excellent choreography, which ranges from classical to contemporary in style. The artistry of dance is expressed through choreography, and we place a strong emphasis on its value. Our Summer Intensive Program culminates in a fully staged performance that friends and families can attend on Friday July 20, 2018.

Location and Housing

Classes are held at our home studio, The Gail Towbes Center for Dance, conveniently located in beautiful downtown Santa Barbara. With over 10,000 square feet of studio space and state-of-the-art suspended floors, this is the perfect place to refine and enhance dance technique and artistry. Located on the shores of the Pacific Ocean and backed by magnificent mountains, Santa Barbara is safe and easy to get around.

Accommodations for Summer Intensive participants are available at the University of California at Santa Barbara, a short bus ride from our studio. Students may stay in dormitory suites, with bedding and towels available. These accommodations include supervision, meals and transportation. Students may also seek their own housing arrangements.
