In early March 2020, COVID-19 swept through South Dakota, shutting down public spaces and confining everyone to their homes.  The dancers in our region were stuck in their living rooms attempting to learn from videos and losing steam as their studios converted to Zoom classes.  


South Dakota Ballet took action immediately & put together an outstanding opportunity for our local talent to study with some of the world's best right from their homes.  We hosted a week-long virtual workshop (or "intensive" as we call it in the field of ballet).  This workshop was FREE for participants & we were blessed with over 300 attendees.  


Our faculty included:

Rachel Richardson- American Ballet Theatre

Madison McDonough- Miami City Ballet

Brittany Rand- Los Angeles Ballet

Jane King- Lion King National Tour 

Madeleine Scott- South Dakota Ballet

Sadie Brown- Aspen Santa Fe Ballet

Ryan Vetter- Royal Winnipeg Ballet

Phillippe LaRouche-Royal Winnipeg Ballet


Please donate to this cause so we can make more opportunies available to our local talent as they do not know when their training will return back to "normal".
