This year’s Summer Dance Workshop has been designed to adjust to the current, and shifting, health guidelines related to Covid-19 safety.  The event is being designed as an onsite activity that will maintain prevailing CDC and Illinois Health guidelines for social distancing and safety, as well as adhere to hotel safety requirements. Masks will be required for attendance.

Only one teacher session – Convention – will be scheduled.

Both Ballet Forum and Student Sessions will begin registrations with two classes and four classes, respectively. If more students register than the maximum room requirements allow, an additional classroom will be opened, additional faculty will be hired, and the students will be shifted to even out room sizes.

Because of this modular format in Ballet Forum and Student Sessions, the curriculum in each session may be fluid. No final schedules will be published until you arrive.
