Dance Summer Schools Europe

What Summer School should I go to this year?

BellPhotoshoot1-001I’m sure that many young dance students are asking themselves this same question as the time to apply is fast approaching.

As my family home is in Italy, I have been looking for a two-week professional course in Europe towards the end of July. My search has highlighted two that interest me – the Princess Grace Academy Summer Course in Monte-Carlo and the Amsterdam International Summer School (AISS). Both are held at schools associated to two prominent ballet companies: Les Ballets de Monte-Carlo and the Dutch National Ballet.

With graduation auditions less than two years from now, it is important for me to gain experience and understand the employment opportunities for classical ballet dancers throughout Europe. I am certain that either of the summer schools listed above would provide me with invaluable training experience, plus allow me to make new acquaintances that could lead to exciting opportunities in the future.

Like all young students, I must consider the financial costs of summer training also. A two-week course normally costs around £2, 000 when taking training costs, travel, food and accommodation into consideration. It is necessary for me to continue to fund-raise towards these expenses. Some dancers are lucky to gain course fee reductions, sponsors or promotional work to help fund their training. As always, I am actively looking into all three options. I will keep you posted.

If you would like to read more about ways for young dancers to become more media savvy, I recommend you read the following two ‘Ballet Business’ articles: Fundraising and published by Ballet News.

Happy Bday Romare Bearden

Romare Bearden's life was full of movement. Born in 1912 in Charlotte, North Carolina, Bearden's family moved shortly thereafter to Harlem where their apartment was a popular meeting place for intellectuals and artists such as W.E.B. DuBois, Aaron Douglas, and Charles Alston during the Renaissance. In 1925, Bearden moved to Pittsburgh where he eventually graduated from high school, and later came back to New York, obtaining his bachelor's degree in mathematics from New York University. The painter eventually joined the "306" group and continued his study of European painting which was later to exert a heavy influence on his work

I meant to put that in quotes

But I disagree that the reception of a historian is merely an academic phenomenon. History as a discipline is conservative in many ways, I know, having a masters in modern european history from SF State. Whether or not other academics give Zinn a thumbs up or down is not terribly interesting to me, although I understand what you are saying. I have to say that many of the students I went to school with had no clue what was going on in the community outside the University, and were caught up in who got what scholarship or academic award for their resume so they could get higher paying jobs as professors
