Redding Ballet Academie's Summer Youth Dance Camp is a program of serious study in a warm and companionable atmosphere. Under the supervision of Redding City Ballet's Artistic Director Cindy Michaels and Assistant Artistic Director Amberly Steffensen, the program offers top quality teachers and guest teachers that are dedicated to the learning process and growth of each individual student. Class size will be limited.
Students participate in a minimum of four classes per day with RCB's renowned faculty, and enjoy a comprehensive curriculum that includes exposure to artists, history and repertory. The RBA Summer Intensive focuses on developing well-rounded dancers by exposure to a wide variety of disciplines with an emphasis on classical ballet technique and key elements of national training curriculum.

RBA provides caring and careful instruction conducive to technical and artistic progress. In seeking to maintain a feeling of community.

RBA's 2010 summer program is aimed to advance all students' artistic development through the close collaboration involved in developing new works with acclaimed resident dancers and choreographers who work closely with Redding City Ballet and Redding Ballet Academie throughout the year. 
The Value of Dance

One of the things that we, as teachers are asked is,  "What is the value of an education in dance?" My answer after dancing for over twenty-five years (and having time to explore numerous other activities) is that the dance classroom remains the place I have had my most enlightening as well as humbling experiences.  

While the education of a dancer takes place in a classroom setting the learning process for each individual is a highly personal experience. It is a continuous lesson in art, music, cooperation, problem solving, and coordination and, all of it is within your power as an individual. Hardly the sequestered existence it is rumored to be! 

Summer Lee Rhatigan, the director of San Francisco Conservatory of Dance points out that, "Because it is so personal, you learn quickly that you're responsible for all the great things that can happen to you." 

Instilling of a confidence building skill in young people during years when peer pressure and acceptance begins to become a motivational force in their lives can be a tool that you can't put a price on.
