Dragonfly Dance presents Adult Ballet Intensive on Easter Monday

Dragonfly Dance, the premier dance studio in Adelaide specialising in adult dancers, is thrilled to announce its upcoming Adult Ballet Intensive, set to take place on Easter Monday, 1 April, at their studio located at 80 Anzac Highway, Everard Park.

This immersive one-day event promises to be an exhilarating journey into the world of ballet, tailored specifically for adult dancers seeking to deepen their understanding and skills in this fascinating art form. Featuring a meticulously curated program, the intensive will offer participants a comprehensive exploration of various facets of ballet technique.

Adult ballet dancers will have the opportunity to engage in a series of workshops designed to enhance their proficiency in ballet, beginning with an invigorating hour-long ballet barre session to set the tone for the day. Subsequent sessions will delve into essential elements of ballet, including port de bras/adage, turns, pointe/demi-pointe, and allegro, allowing dancers to refine their technique and artistry under expert guidance.

Participants can choose between two streams tailored to accommodate different levels of experience. The intensive culminates in a captivating 90-minute session where dancers can opt to learn a ballet variation or participate in a partnering workshop where you’ll learn partnering techniques and a short duet.

Jo McDonald, founder and co-owner of Dragonfly Dance, expressed her enthusiasm for the upcoming intensive, stating, “We are thrilled to bring this exciting ballet intensive to the vibrant community of adult dancers in Adelaide. At Dragonfly Dance, we are passionate about providing adult dancers with the same opportunities for growth and artistic development as their younger counterparts and professional peers. This intensive represents our commitment to fostering excellence and nurturing the talents of adult dancers, empowering them to reach new heights in their dance journey.”

The Adult Ballet Intensive follows the success of Dragonfly Dance’s inaugural Adult Dance Intensive, held earlier this year, and is part of their 2024 Intensive program, which includes upcoming intensives in theatre, jazz, tap, and contemporary dance. Mark your calendars for the Theatre Intensive on the June long weekend and the Contemporary Dance Intensive on the Labor Day long weekend.

Don’t miss your chance to elevate your ballet experience and embark on a transformative journey of dance exploration. Pricing and bookings for the Adult Ballet Intensive open on March 4th, with an early bird discount available until March 18th.
