The 2017 IDT Junior Ballet Camp worked on mastering ballet technique as they learned and perfected proper positions, worked on plies, tondos and arabesques withIDT Executive Director, Karissa Molen. They refined across the floor exercises and learned a full contemporary ballet piece to “Lost Boys” choreographed by IDT Ballet Director, Alyssa Conder over the past 3 days. Karissa and Alyssa were so proud of their performance today in front of an adoring crowd and can’t wait to start the 2017-2018 season of the IDT Ballet Program! #intensitydanceteam #noregrets
