Mind, Body, Soul

Each summer Mind Body Soul brings together a diverse community of dancers, teachers, choreographers, guest artists and accomplished alumni from throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Our unique approach, along with a tenacious work ethic, provides well trained dance artists ages ten to twenty-five an environment to flourish. A foundation of strong technical training based in daily ballet classes is complimented with a diverse array of dance styles and techniques.

The Fine Print
Mind, Body, Soul is designed for the dancer with a minimum of three years of training who wants to push the limits and step out of the box with all the possibilities of being an artist. Students must throw away their insecurities with unfamiliar dance styles and use this experience to build upon their artistic vocabulary.
For nearly 50 years, ballet has served The Gold School and its alumni very well as the foundation of all dance training at the school. If you dislike ballet or do not appreciate its value to all dance forms this program may not be for you.
As a respect to all dance forms, each dancer is expected to dress the part. Just as you might wear cool sneakers and sweats for hip hop, we expect female dancers to wear pink tights, a one-piece leotard, and their hair in a bun for every ballet class. Male dancers should wear a dance belt, tights (preferred) or black shorts and a white leotard or t-shirt for ballet class.
Dancers must enter the classroom without a parent. Only registered dancers are allowed in any classroom during Mind, Body, Soul.
Respect for fellow students, faculty, and staff, as well as our facilities, is expected at all times. Any breach of this policy will result in immediate dismissal from the program.
(Female) Ballet will be taken in a solid one-piece black or dark colored leotard and pink tights with hair in a tight bun.
(Males) Ballet will be taken in shorts or tights w/solid white leotard or t-shirt.
Modern class must be taken barefoot.
*Dancers may change for other subjects. Dancers should bring a yoga mat.
Dancers should bring a lunch daily. Water is available at the school.
