Welcome to the Junior Masterclasses for Summer 2024.

International Ballet Masterclasses in Prague are very pleased to be able to announce the second year for junior students, aged 13-15 years old, led by the world famous Prima Ballerina and ex Royal Ballet School teacher, Daria Klimentová. 

This coming summer 2024 she will be joined once again by Patrick Armand and Simona Ferrazza. Also joining us will be Tom Bosma (ex Deputy Director of Dance at the Royal Conservatoire in the Hague), and Isabella Gasparini ( 1st Soloist Royal Ballet)

 The dates for 2024 will be from the 5th-9th August 2024 inclusive

The classes will be held at the same studios as the main Masterclasses, the home of the Czech National Ballet, at Anenske Namesti 2, Prague 1, 110 00, CZ. 

We will not be organising accommodation for the students and they will have to be accompanied in Prague by their parents or guardian. However we can recommend places to stay should you wish.

Students should be brought to the studios from 9am each morning. For lunch times we have a subsidised canteen on site where parents are welcome to join the dancers for something to eat each day (this was very popular last summer) or they can be collected and taken out for lunch. Students will also have to be collected by 5pm at the end of each day.

The days will be structured as follows: 10.00-11.30 General Class

                                                                       12.00-13.15 Boys Variation

                                                                       12.00-14.00 Girls variation (two groups one hour each group)

                                                                       15.00-16.30 Girls and Boys repertoire / Contemporary (alternate days)

The price of the course is £750.00 (seven hundred and fifty pounds sterling) or €900.00 (nine hundred euro).

Places for the course are limited so try to apply early.
