Guided by the Ohio Department of Health and placing the health and safety of our instructors and students as top priority, North Pointe Ballet is moving forward with online summer training for the month of June. As the situation continues to change, we are prepared with in-person in-studio options for July and August should we feel that we can operate safely and effectively. However, we are confident that our online options for the month of June will allow a variety of choices that can accommodate everyone’s situation and allow for continued learning and conditioning.
North Pointe Ballet will offer remote training for both intermediate and advanced dancers through the month of June. Students have their choice of 3 options:
Students will have access to 6 pre-recorded master classes in Ballet technique geared toward their level of ability and the needs of our students. All 6 classes will be approximately 75-90 minutes long and will be available for the entire month of June for only $30.
Students will have access to the above 6 technique classes, plus additional 4 electives. Elective classes are considered to be jazz, contemporary, conditioning, pointe, etc. and will be approximately 50-60 minutes long. Students will have access to all 10 classes for the month of June for only $50.
Students will have access to the above 6 technique classes, 4 elective classes, and two private lessons with an NPB instructor via zoom. Zoom privates will be scheduled by the education coordinator and students will be placed with a different instructor for each lesson. Advanced privates will be scheduled on Tuesdays between 10am-2pm, Intermediate privates will be scheduled on Thursdays between 10am-2pm. Once this package is purchased, the education coordinator will contact the purchaser to schedule the lessons. Students will have access to the 10 classes and the 2 private lessons for the month of June for $100.
North Pointe Ballet is also offering a chance for dance friends to train together remotely. Students are encouraged to find up to 2 other students of their approximate age and ability and sign up for one of several semi-private lessons available on Saturdays in June. Each semi-private lesson will be 30 minutes long and cost $50 total, divided among the participants. We know how important dancing with NPB friends is to many of our students and are hoping this option will allow some virtual contact with each other while they train. After a semi-private lesson is purchased, the instructor will reach out directly to the purchaser with a link to Zoom meeting and discuss goals of the lesson.
