SIBA has the honor, this summer, of hosting guest teacher Ildiko Pongor of the Hungarian National Ballet. SIBA accepts only 80 students in order to give personal attention to students. Auditions by e-mail only.
The program includes: Classical ballet, Variations, Repertoire, Modern Dance, Musical-jazz, Nacho Duato Choreography, Special Makeup classes, Stage & Lighting, and more. On the 3rd weekend the students will have a full day tour of the Lakes and Alps surrounding Salzburg.
SIBA’s goal is to enable young dancers to experience the life of a professional dancer. From the moment they arrive, each dancer is a part of a “company” of highly trained dancer students from all over the world. They live together, train and perform, honing their skills with some of Europe’s leading ballet masters, morning to night -- an experience that is pivotal in deciding whether “you have what it takes.” This transformative workshop not only prepares, motivates and inspires serious young dancers to deepen their artistry and abilities to a world class level, but as one student describes, “[to] grow not only as an artist, but as a person.” Most importantly, the students get stage experience, and a full DVD to be used in further auditioning.
SIBA's faculty, led by Peter Breuer, Artistic Director of the Salzburg Ballet, is an international group of brilliant instructors and ballet teachers from all over the world. The faculty is dedicated to giving students the training and performance experiences to improve their style and expression. See some of our leading teachers at work: http://www.youtube.com/
