Master Class Series in Residence
The Performing Arts School at bergenPAC is proud and excited to announce another year of Dance Masters in Residence: 90 minute Master Classes, featuring Principal Dancers. Under the Artistic Direction of New York City Ballet Principal Dancer, Daniel Ulbricht, this season of Master Classes will feature Principal Dancers in ballet, musical theater and contemporary/jazz.
“There are no words to describe what the Masters of Dance program will bring. The kids will be challenged physically and mentally. They will push their own limits but importantly, they will be inspired to become the best that they can be. Having access and the ability to work with these individuals will help ignite the next generations of artists and audiences alike,” said Daniel Ulbricht. This unique opportunity to work on a regular schedule with some of the world’s foremost dancers and teachers is a first for any private school of dance in the state of New Jersey.
All Master Classes will take place at The Performing Arts School.
Classes are $35 each for non-Performing Arts School students.
5 classes for $150
Performing Arts School and Englewood students are free.
