    PRINTABLE 2018 SUMMER INTENSIVE BROCHURE

     

    SUMMER DANCE FOR ALL LEVELS - PRE-DANCE TO ADVANCED

    The Ruth Page School of Dance is happy to announce our summer dance programs for all levels of dance. Since our summer dance is an extension of our year-round program, dancers will continue in the same ballet level as they were in the school year 2017/18, even if the dancer will be promoted in the fall of 2018.

    Our Mission : Through our experienced and dedicated faculty of dance professionals and international partners, develop well rounded dance artists through high-quality training. Embrace diverse cultures as a source of inspiration for creativity and human self-expression in dance. Create lifelong ambassadors for the art of dance.
