Company Crash Course Intensive
This is a mandatory week of classes to prepare to be in the MBPC and to learn choreography for the upcoming season. ALL company members will stay for all portions of choreography even if they may not end up performing it. Learning choreography is important and dancers gain knowledge and strength from understudy opportunities. Each day will begin with a ballet warm up class and be followed by rehearsals for various works we will have in our repertoire this fall, including: Collage, The Nutcracker, and Swan Lake.
