Quotes from LGB Upper Division Dancers about preparing them for other summer programs.
Madeleine Monroe, age 14, attended Boston Ballet Summer Intensive
"I felt that Los Gatos Ballet has prepared my well for this experience, especially in that they teach and introduce you to many styles making it easier to transition into different techniques."
Kirina Patel, age 14, attended American Ballet Theatre Orange County summer intensive
"I feel that I receive really good training at Los Gatos Ballet. The teachers there are able to give you individual corrections to help you become a better dancer. Also, the two performances each year show give us the opportunity to perform for people, which is something that not everyone is able to do."
Madeleine Kolber, age 14, attended Boston Ballet summer intensive
"Los Gatos Ballet provides a high level of training that has allowed me to excel in auditions for top summer programs. I am able to compete with the best dancers in the country because I have such a strong technical foundation."
Sarah Auches, age 15, attended Oregon Ballet Theatre summer Intensive
"I am always thankful for everything I have learned from my training at LGB. The teachers there have shown me so much of who I am as a person and as a dancer."
Mariah Ordaz, age 17, attended Ballet San Jose summer intensive
"I feel that my training at Los Gatos Ballet is wonderful, I love the instructors, the staff, and my fellow students. I feel that I grow more artistically and technically efficient each year I attend Los Gatos Ballet."
Sophie Cichanowicz, age 16, attended Houston Ballet summer intensive
"The training I received from LGB gave me a foundation to my dancing that has helped me within the past year. This past year I have been studying with San Francisco Ballet School, and now I will be moving to Texas to join Houston Ballet Academy. I would never have been able to get where I am without the help of all my teachers at LGB."
