At the Irvine Barclay Theatre
Join us for a special dance demonstration as part of a 3-week Summer Intensive program of Southland Ballet Academy. SBA’s Summer Intensive is dedicated to excellence in training for the aspiring professional dancer. During this extensive program, students from Japan, England, Germany, Canada, and throughout the United States are divided into professional, advanced and intermediate levels, and are offered the rare opportunity to benefit under the guidance and expertise of internationally known Ballet Masters. Students leave the program with greater knowledge of ballet and appreciation for the art of dance.The Summer Ballet Intensive Performance will showcase the technical and artistic growth of these talented dancers as well as allow them an opportunity to refine their performance abilities on the Barclay stage.
Founded in 1983 by Salwa Rizkalla, Southland Ballet Academy, the official school of Orange County’s Festival Ballet Theatre, cultivates the education and appreciation of classical ballet for both the beginning student and the professional dancer. The Academy perpetuates the discipline and technique of the Russian Vaganova method of classical ballet combined with the articulation of the American and European styles in order to give a unique and fulfilling experience to dancers of all ages.
