Summer Programs 2017
Immerse Yourself In An Extraordinary Experience At ECB This Summer.
See how much you’ll improve as a dancer when you enroll in one of Eastern Connecticut Ballet’s summer classes, a dance program that celebrates the tradition of George Balanchine.
Whether you’re a budding ballerina of five or a well-trained young dancer considering a professional career, you’ll find just the right class and the best teachers to help you take the next important steps. Providing the creative vision for the program is our Artistic Director Gloria Govrin, a soloist with the New York City Ballet. The legendary George Balanchine created many major roles for Ms. Govrin, and today she excels as both a teacher and choreographer. All of our professional faculty, many with deep roots in the Balanchine tradition, will provide the nurturing and guidance to enrich your own experience.
ECB is proud to share the exciting news that our guest faculty for the Summer Intensive includes New York City Ballet’s extraordinary principal dancer SARA MEARNS. New York Times dance critic Alastair Macaulay calls her “the most authoritative, romantically dramatic, and glamorous ballerina in the United States.” She has graced ECB’s “Nutcracker” for the past three years as a guest soloist, winning the hearts of both our audience members and students. There’s no doubt that Ms. Mearns, and our other distinguished guest faculty, will have an impact on every student in our Summer Intensive.
