The curriculum for the IJ Summer Ballet Intensive, created especially for IJ by recent Bolshoi Ballet principals and IJ instructors Anastasia Yatsenko and Yan Godovsky, will encompass coaching in classical choreography and character dance, with an emphasis on learning and performing selections from ballet masterworks. 

Students will be divided into two age groups: 15-18 years old (secondary school students) and 18-22 years old (college students). 

The maximum enrollment for each session is 80 students.  Classes will be held six days a week, with students training for approximately 6 hours per day.

Each session will culminate with a final performance for friends and families.



A one-time, non-refundable application fee of $40, due with the application submission.

IJ offers two tuition options for students:

  • Day Students - $3,500 per session
  • Residential Students - $4,400 per session

Two of the most deserving students will be selected from the applicant pool to receive Summer Intensive Fellowships that will include full tuition and housing.
