MIDAS summer intensive is August 24th-28th and has an amazing faculty including current professional dancers (from Matthew Bourne's New Adventures) and ex-professional dancers who were soloists and principals with either BRB or ENB.

 

There are still plenty of spaces which means that those who are currently signed up will get FANTASTIC small group, focused tuition.

Well the two most elite programmes I guess are Royal Ballet School & Yorkshire Ballet Summer School http://www.ybss.co.uk/ 

 

Others of a similar ilk would include Elmhurst School for Dance http://www.elmhurstdance.co.uk/summer-school-1.html 

English National Ballet School http://www.enbschool.org.uk/editorial.php?ref=summer-course

 

For all the above there is a selection process/minimum standard

 

Then there is Central School of Ballet http://www.centralschoolofballet.co.uk/ssccourseoutline.php(must be en pointe & studying IF or above)

OPES has been metioned already dd is going this year as she knows one of the teachers and the standard is reputed to be excellent though there is no selection procedure it is regurarly attended by vocational students www.opesballet.co.uk

 

Dd did Moorland Ballet Summer School last year - again non selective but attracts vocational students http://moorlandballet.co.uk/summer-course/

 

The above courses are all residential

 

There are lots of others  Northern Ballet, West Yorkshire Summer School, Harpenden, Tring Park, Hammond to name just a few.

In the UK they tend to be called Summer Schools rather than Summer Intensives. If you use the forum search facility, there are a lot of threads on summer schools which may help you in your quest.

Prima_Ballerina, if you click on the tag "holiday courses" (at the top, under the thread title), it will show a list of all threads relating to summer schools.

English National Ballet School Summer intensive is not residential. The standard is very high here and, like the Royal Ballet School course, a high proportion of students are foreign. It is very useful to see the different styles, range of ability etc

Thank you! I will definitely have a look at that!

My daughter (14) is doing OPES week 2 also for the first time following recommendations on this fabulous forum! She knows a couple of boys going but no girls so good to know some ballet co-ers will be there. Does anyone know how classes are arranged?

My sister is 14 and will be there too. Last year there were three groups, juniors, inters and seniors. It's a lovely summer school and everyone is really friendly xx

I think it's more what grade you are depends on what group you are in. I think they want it where people feel comfortable. But if you are not happy with the group all teachers are very approachable and will be more than happy to talk about switching groups x
