Excel with Confidence. Train to Win.

August 19-24, 2024

Student Program

Our
Mission

DUCON’s mission is to use the classical ballet art form to train and transform students to be the very best version of themselves; not only in technique and artistry, but also in character building which includes the students’ ability to be empathetic and compassionate to others.

The first five days of the program will consist of technique classes & variation coaching sessions led by our master teachers.

 

Every student will receive 1-on-1 coaching 15 to 20 minutes every day of this program to refine their variation.

 

 

This portion is designed to build stronger foundations in ballet technique and drive confidence in dancers by helping them see noticeable progress.

Formerly known as the Mock Competition, all students will perform their solo variation to receive direct feedback from our jury.

 

 

This ties in with The Training and it is designed to prepare students for upcoming competitions, develop their stage presence, and elevate their confidence through results.
