Dancers can choose to train in-person* or virtually for our full two-week program, for a single week, or for half days. We are aiming to have at least three levels within our program this year. Based on enrollment, we will customize our level offerings to meet the needs of the dancers.
*Please see below for details about training in-person
Week 1: Classical Focus, August 2-6
Week 2: Contemporary Focus, August 9-13
In the Classical week, dancers will focus on ballet technique, pointe (when appropriate), variations, character, and musical theater. The Contemporary week will have more emphasis on modern, jazz, contemporary, and other dance styles such as hip hop.
In previous years, our levels have broken down as such:
Intermediate- 3 years of ballet technique.
Advanced- 4+ years of ballet technique, and at least 2 years of Pointe.**
Pre-Professional- 5+ years of ballet technique, and at least 2 years of Pointe.**
**Dancers wishing to participate in either week do not need to be en pointe.
Please don’t hesitate to call or email us at [email protected] with questions and concerns.

In-Person and Online Training
Dancers residing in the Eugene area will have the opportunity to register for in-studio classes, following specific protocol. The exception would include any out of town dancer who has quarantined in the Eugene area for 14 days prior to August 2. We feel this plan is in the best interest of all—our faculty, staff and dancers. Dancers signing in from out of town, or choosing to remain at home, will be able to join the in-studio classes via live-stream through Zoom.
The online experience has become a lifeline and an essential teaching platform for dancers and dance educators. EBA has been offering Zoom classes for our dance families since March 2020 and have found effective teaching techniques that are keeping our dancers engaged and moving forward. We do recognize that this form of learning can be challenging for multiple reasons, but we’d like to encourage dancers to try our program if they are able. Our goal is to support dancers in finding ways to get the best out of this new style of training by offering guidance and encouragement. Online coaching sessions are available prior and during the intensive for students who find they would like additional assistance tailored to their individual setup. We know that online education will continue to evolve and become a consistent part of our dance education opportunities. We’re on board for the journey and would like you to join us!
We have recently moved into our brand new facility, the Midtown Arts Center. We have equipped our studios with technology that allows us to stream remotely our in-person classes and offer other virtual learning experiences. This includes 70″ monitors for faculty to view dancers joining in virtually, web cams so dancers can clearly see the instructor as they move throughout the studio, and new sound equipment.
We strive to inspire the next generation of young dancers to grow and fully express their artistic gifts. Our passionate and energetic staff will offer insight into the world of professional dance, providing each student with individual attention, ensuring a rewarding experience.
