Summer school Norway, Drammen 2020

RAD summerschool in Drammen

– a centenary celebration

The summer school is for all students who love Ballet.

The Royal Academy of Dance Scandinavia wants to give all students an unforgettable week, where you have 4 to 5 classes a day with a final viewing for parents and the other students. We will give you classes where all the elements of classical ballet are present: Free technique classes, and some of these classes: Repertoire, Group Dance, Neo Classical, Movement and Music, Creativity, Pre-Point Class/body conditioning

The goal is that as many ballet students as possible get the opportunity to train with some of the best teachers. That more students should experience teachers who live and breathe for their profession. Teachers who have a great understanding of the body, and the knowledge to convey this further into art. The student should get an inspiration that can give them the little extra to work a little harder when everyday life comes. It must be an objective that the student should improve their dance artistic abilities in the summer school. We want to find the new talents and help them along the way, or enjoy those who just love to dance enjoy it even more.

Groups

We make groups based on the enrolments, where students are divided by age and skills. Vi also has an advanced group for vocational students or those who have attained Advanced level. They get more classes and therefore a higher price. Timetable will be set upon arrival.

Teachers

Our teachers are internationally renowned. Most of them speak English but we have our chaperones to help with translation when needed.

Studies

These are some of the classes participants will be offered. Free ballet class, Repertoire, Group dance, Virtuosity, Body conditioning, Neo classical and Creativity

Pianist

And we use live music in class. The use of live music will strengthen the musicality to the students. The use of pianist is almost a stranger to students today. But we feel this is such an important element to gain quality in dance.

Where

We will be in Drammen, 5 days at fantastic Attic, here we will have a lot of facilities, which I know we will benefit greatly. Here you will find yoga and reformer rooms in addition to beautiful studios.

Food

Every day the students will be served a good lunch. Fruit and vegetables will be available every day in breaks. Participants musk make sure the bring a water bottle and fill this up regularly. We strongly urges that students eat and drink healthy when they are training this much. Chaperones will also try to make sure everybody takes care of them selves.

Outings

Within the week there will be organised a disco night this is for all. Those who have opted for accommodation will also be able to attend different outings in the local area, get to know each other night, etc.

As this is a celebration of our centenary we are preparing for a surprice outing for all students.

Accommodation

Accommodation for those who need it will be at Danvik Folkehøyskole. Here they have twin rooms, and they provide breakfast and dinner for us. Danvik is walking distance to Attic so perfect for a great week with lots of training. If you wish to stay extra nights or parents wishing to join, this must be arranged directly with Danvik. The summer school stands for accommodation Tuesday to Saturday.
