Artistic Director and CEO of Ballet Kelowna Simone Orlando is pleased to present the fourth annual OSDI program under her direction.  Situated in the beautiful Okanagan Valley of BC, Ballet Kelowna’s OSDI offers dance students the opportunity to learn from professional dancers and choreographers. Participants will experience a range of movement training and will learn signature works from Ballet Kelowna’s repertoire.

Students will train extensively in daily classes in classical ballet, pointe, repertoire, and contemporary. Ballet Kelowna is committed to providing an exceptional summer dance experience under the direction and guidance of teachers who challenge each student to achieve their highest technical and artistic capability.

OSDI 2019 will take place at Ballet Kelowna’s studio at 2283 Leckie Road in Kelowna, and offers a one-week Junior Intensive for intermediate level students and a one-week Senior Intensive for advanced level students.  A student demonstration is presented at the end of each week.

Ballet Kelowna Bursaries

Ballet Kelowna is excited to be offering three bursaries of $200.00 each to eligible dancers who wish to participate in our Okanagan Summer Dance Intensive. To qualify, dancers must be 18 years of age or younger, and they must live over 100km away from Kelowna.*

You can apply for a Ballet Kelowna Bursary by registering online for the OSDI (no payment required at this time) and submitting a photo as per the registration instructions. Additionally, please send an email to Artistic Director/CEO, Simone Orlando, explaining why you are interested in attending the OSDI and how a bursary would assist you.

* The intent of this bursary is to lower the tuition fee therefore offsetting some of the costs associated with travelling to Kelowna to participate in the OSDI.
