Los Angeles Dance Academy Prepares Again to Host the Prestigious International Dance Event

Los Angeles, CA, April 28, 2011 --( Three adjoined dance studios located in La Canada, north of downtown LA, are going through final preparations for the Los Angeles International Ballet Intensive, hosted by California DanceArts ( This year’s program begins on July 5th and goes until July 23rd, with attending students also being given the opportunity to attend the Global Ballet Workshop in the Czech Republic. Limited attendance has been stipulated, and auditions are already in progress for the Intensive.

The three week Intensive will cover a curriculum of dance education spanning classical and contemporary ballet, pointe, variations, Pas de duex, conditioning and MPT (Maor Placement Technique) and Aerial Ballet, with the final day culminating in a performance by the dancers. The instructors this year have danced with such companies as the New York City Ballet, the Saravejo in Yugoslavia and the Laine Theatre Arts in England; and dancers will also receive instruction from California DanceArts’ Founder and Director, Ms. Erin Holt.

Ms. Holt stated the following: “We’re very pleased to again be hosting the Los Angeles Ballet Intensive for serious students this summer, and we extend a warm welcome to those instructors rejoining the Intensive as well as those joining us for the first time. It is truly a whole different class of program, a rigorous and exacting experience that is unforgettable. Most dancers who have reached this level are already looking to prepare for a career in dance, and the Intensive provides both the level of technical mastery needed and the diverse opportunities for dancers ready for the international stage. It is our privilege to present this year’s Los Angeles International Ballet Intensive.”
