The Ormao Summer Dance Workshops are geared towards those ages 13 through adult.

Ballet History

Prentiss Benjamin will teach this workshop on June 18-21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. This workshop investigates the history of ballet, with origins in Italy and Catherine de Medici, how it evolved in the courts of Louis XIV and its expansion by Jean George Nouverre as well as the most influential choreographers, composers and dancers. From experiential components, such as investigating the difference between major schools’ port de bras styles and a Balanchine tendu vs Vaganova tendu to a lecture portion, which involves watching performances, this workshop will elevate the dancers’ ballet expression. Workshop fee: $185.

Choreographers’ Workshop

This is a two week Intensive for ages 12 through adult who are intermediate to advanced level in dancing. The workshop takes place Monday through Friday, July 16 to 27, from 12 to 3 p.m. each day. The workshop is taught by Patrizia Herminjard who is an Associate Professor at Colorado College. This is an annual favorite at Ormao Studio! In an intensive studio setting, students will have the opportunity to explore their own creative ideas and inspirations for building a dance. This is an extremely unique workshop experience for aspiring choreographers, typically only offered in college level coursework! Workshop Fee: $350. The fee includes costume rental and studio performance on Friday, July 27.

How Did We Get Here? Discovering Your Dance Roots

Ila Conoley will teach this workshop August 1-4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Do you ever watch current dance and wonder how we got here? Did dancers thousands of years ago dance en pointe, writhe to electronic soundscapes, and execute acrobatic feats? Or, has dance slowly developed with the athletic ability of the dancers and the temperament of society? In this workshop you will identify your current favorite choreographer, academically and kinesthetically study modern dance ancestors, dance in new work created by Ila Conoley to be performed the final day, and analyze the roots of the new work. All of this taught in a fun, casual, engaging atmosphere focused on individual success! Workshop fee: $185.

Utilizing a full cast of hand-carved marionettes, Frances Hodgson Burnett’s famous novel is staged in this live production by puppeteer David Simpich.

In the story, young and disagreeable Mary Lennox is forced to stay at her Uncle Craven’s manor on the bleak Yorkshire Moors of northern England after the death of her parents. Here she is drawn to a secluded garden surrounded by a high stone wall and with no apparent door or gate. When the entrance is miraculously revealed, Mary’s exploration begins and the mysteries of her uncle’s manor are steadily brought to light.

This production is the winner of the UNIMA USA Citation of Excellence, the highest honor in North American puppetry.

[more+]

This is the 4th workshop in Pikes Peak Climbing Alliance's GYM to CRAG Climbing Series. Even if you’ve missed prior workshops, where they have talked about Leave No Trace ethics and culture of the climbing community, gear needed outside, and sport climbing, you can still jump into this workshop, no problem. Learn a lot in this very interactive workshop.

Pikes Peak Climbing Alliance provides a great starting place for your approach to traditional climbing, or trad climbing, which is a style of rock climbing in which climbers place all gear required to protect against falls, and remove the gear when a pitch is complete.

This workshop will focus on single pitch trad climbing by looking at the gear required, proper placements of the different types of protection, how to remove the gear placed and techniques to aid in the removal of stuck gear. A critical component of trad climbing to protect you and your second is building an anchor and the bare bones of anchor building will also be discussed.

This will be a very good introduction to trad climbing that would begin to open the doors to new routes and new heights.

This is a special class where you can ask questions easily and begin your journey to discovering a new facet to your climbing or reinforcing elements you've already learned. All levels and abilities are welcome.

Students will be trained on fencing safety and fundamentals in a group lesson and then will bout against one another!

You will be provided all fencing gear and protective equipment so all you need to enjoy fencing is long gym pants, gym shoes and a tee shirt.

Registration is open for Summer classes. Classes are available for children, teens and adults at Front Range Fencing Club. Note that class size is limited and usually fills early. Intermediate and advanced on-going classes and competitive lessons are offered.

Scout Experience Fencing sessions, After School Programs, Corporate and Ladies Night Out Sessions are also available.

Schedule:

  • Youth Level 1
    • Thursdays, June 7 through 28, 5 to 6 p.m.

The Ormao Summer Dance Workshops are geared towards those ages 13 through adult.

Ballet History

Prentiss Benjamin will teach this workshop on June 18-21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. This workshop investigates the history of ballet, with origins in Italy and Catherine de Medici, how it evolved in the courts of Louis XIV and its expansion by Jean George Nouverre as well as the most influential choreographers, composers and dancers. From experiential components, such as investigating the difference between major schools’ port de bras styles and a Balanchine tendu vs Vaganova tendu to a lecture portion, which involves watching performances, this workshop will elevate the dancers’ ballet expression. Workshop fee: $185.

Choreographers’ Workshop

This is a two week Intensive for ages 12 through adult who are intermediate to advanced level in dancing. The workshop takes place Monday through Friday, July 16 to 27, from 12 to 3 p.m. each day. The workshop is taught by Patrizia Herminjard who is an Associate Professor at Colorado College. This is an annual favorite at Ormao Studio! In an intensive studio setting, students will have the opportunity to explore their own creative ideas and inspirations for building a dance. This is an extremely unique workshop experience for aspiring choreographers, typically only offered in college level coursework! Workshop Fee: $350. The fee includes costume rental and studio performance on Friday, July 27.

How Did We Get Here? Discovering Your Dance Roots

Ila Conoley will teach this workshop August 1-4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Do you ever watch current dance and wonder how we got here? Did dancers thousands of years ago dance en pointe, writhe to electronic soundscapes, and execute acrobatic feats? Or, has dance slowly developed with the athletic ability of the dancers and the temperament of society? In this workshop you will identify your current favorite choreographer, academically and kinesthetically study modern dance ancestors, dance in new work created by Ila Conoley to be performed the final day, and analyze the roots of the new work. All of this taught in a fun, casual, engaging atmosphere focused on individual success! Workshop fee: $185.

Utilizing a full cast of hand-carved marionettes, Frances Hodgson Burnett’s famous novel is staged in this live production by puppeteer David Simpich.

In the story, young and disagreeable Mary Lennox is forced to stay at her Uncle Craven’s manor on the bleak Yorkshire Moors of northern England after the death of her parents. Here she is drawn to a secluded garden surrounded by a high stone wall and with no apparent door or gate. When the entrance is miraculously revealed, Mary’s exploration begins and the mysteries of her uncle’s manor are steadily brought to light.

This production is the winner of the UNIMA USA Citation of Excellence, the highest honor in North American puppetry.

[more+]

This is the 4th workshop in Pikes Peak Climbing Alliance's GYM to CRAG Climbing Series. Even if you’ve missed prior workshops, where they have talked about Leave No Trace ethics and culture of the climbing community, gear needed outside, and sport climbing, you can still jump into this workshop, no problem. Learn a lot in this very interactive workshop.

Pikes Peak Climbing Alliance provides a great starting place for your approach to traditional climbing, or trad climbing, which is a style of rock climbing in which climbers place all gear required to protect against falls, and remove the gear when a pitch is complete.

This workshop will focus on single pitch trad climbing by looking at the gear required, proper placements of the different types of protection, how to remove the gear placed and techniques to aid in the removal of stuck gear. A critical component of trad climbing to protect you and your second is building an anchor and the bare bones of anchor building will also be discussed.

This will be a very good introduction to trad climbing that would begin to open the doors to new routes and new heights.

This is a special class where you can ask questions easily and begin your journey to discovering a new facet to your climbing or reinforcing elements you've already learned. All levels and abilities are welcome.
