The ACBT Performing Arts Camp is a six week summer intensive dance camp. IPAC accepts auditions for boarding and day students, ages 10 and up, intermediate through professional.
About IPA Camp
Once selected, IPAC Students will study and apply the Russian Technique. The day begins with a two hour tech class with pointe. Ballet classes are taught by Artistic Director and awarded International ballet dancer, Phyllis Papa and the professional staff of the Atlantic Contemporary Ballet Theatre. IPAC Students will also benefit from the guidance of guest teachers from The New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theatre.
During audition, IPAC Students will be judged on technical ability, physical aptitude, strength, and effort. If selected, IPAC Students will then be placed into one of the varying levels of classes, determined by the ACBT. Pointe work is similarly divided into levels according to strength, ability and technique. A dancer may be placed in level II pointe class but be placed in a level III technique class. Students in levels I and II work on gaining strength, line, turnout, and improvement in overall technique, as well as valuable lessons in performance preparation. Level III and above concentrate on perfecting technique and developing artistry through an intensive full day of instruction. Students are coached for preparedness in a professional dance career taught the skills necessary to make that transition. Students demonstrating technical readiness may be selected to dance with the company as an apprentice and/or be accepted into our winter intensive academic program.
ACBT offers college credit from the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey to those students who qualify. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on college credit.
What Makes ACBT Special
Each IPC Student receives a personalized, one-on-one evaluation with a faculty member. This evaluation identifies specific areas for improvement and provides professional guidance on exactly how to focus the student’s training in order to achieve improve-ment. Students are encouraged to ask questions and are provided a written critique.
The Atlantic City Ballet Professional Company rehearses at the ACBT studio. This enables summer camp students the opportunity to see the professional company in class and to also be partnered in pas de deux class with a professional dancer.
With the advantage of having an Olympic size swimming pool, students not only get to enjoy the pool during free times, they will also be able to participate in taking barre in the pool.
IPAC Students enrolled in Session I or Session II will perform at Kennedy Plaza on the boardwalk in Atlantic City. Students will also perform for their parents at the end of the session.
