The Washington Ballet will begin holding auditions for the school’s summer intensive training beginning January.
I can remember so clearly bringing Lela to audition for the regular school year when she was four. We were a bundle of nerves like the rest of the parents there, yet so excited for her! Needless to say, she and her sister, Niara, had a ball. After the audition she told me, “Mommy, that was a great class!”
We are now in the 2nd year, Pre-Ballet level, with the Washington Ballet and have been truly impressed with the level of professionalism and attention to detail the teachers show our child. She leaves her classes ‘having learned something’ that she literally cannot wait to show. Most of all, her experience with the school continues to heighten both her curiosity and respect for the craft.
If you know of any dancers ages 5-22 who are looking to sharpen their skills this summer please consider the Washington Ballet.
