Spring Workshop 2020

March 23-28, 2020 in Santa Barbara, CA

State Street Ballet’s Spring Workshop is for professional and pre-professional dancers, ages 18 and up. Focused on classical and contemporary technique, this premiere program will give attendees an opportunity to learn State Street Ballet repertoire, focus on enhancing their artistry, and perform in an informal showcase at the end. Faculty includes State Street Ballet's Associate Director Leila Drake, Professional Track Director Megan Philipp, Director of Education Cecily MacDougall, members of the professional company, and acclaimed local dance instructors. This week-long intensive is perfect for dancers wanting to refine their technique and explore new styles of choreography.
