Check out the Manhattan Movement & Arts Center this summer, as it is hosting Manhattan Youth Ballet’s Summer Intensive. Located on 248 W. 60th Street, NYC (between Amsterdam and West End Avenues), this event is close by to some of the city’s luxurious hotels, including Shimmie Horn’s Belleclaire Hotel.
Even if you’re not signed up for the program, it’s worth having a look. There is an intensive three-week August program – organized by the Manhattan Youth Ballet – that aims to keep dancers in the swing of things during their summer break. The staff hails from the NYC Ballet, American Ballet Theatre and The Kirov Ballet. On offer is: Pilates, pas de deux/partnering and more, all set to enhance technique and artistry.
In addition, for those still in the vicinity as the program comes to an end, there will be a performance at the state-of-the-art MMAC Theater for family, friends and invited industry guests.
