Production Description

Seeking dancers for the Von Heidecke Chicago Festival Ballet's 2014 Summer Intensive. Production states: "Von Heidecke’s School of the Chicago Festival Ballet was founded in 1989 in order to offer the highest level of training in classical ballet. The school has produced professional dancers for Lyric Opera Ballet at Chicago’s Civic Opera House and numerous other professional companies. One former student received her training and first partnering opportunities here before joining New York’s American Ballet Theater, and was featured in a dancing role in the movie "Center Stage." This is the prestigious school that President Obama's daughters appeared in the 2007 production of the "Nutcracker," downtown at the Harris Theater in Chicago when President Obama was still a Senator of Illinois. Gold medalist U.S. Olympic figure skater Evan Lysecek went to this school, along with numerous other students who went on to professional careers. Kenneth von Heidecke is the protege of legendary Prima Ballerina Assoluta, Maria Tallchief. The Summer Workshop performance is the culmination of the Summer Intensive. The aim of the workshop performance is geared toward demonstrating the students’ achievements. The program displays the various academic levels of all dance forms offered currently at the school."
