From ballet to banging cymbals...students of all ages enjoy performing at the Patel Conservatory this week

It’s been another full week of summer camps and intensives!

Our Next Generation Ballet Summer Intensive welcomed the three-week students this week. Students from around the country have come to Tampa to take part in our internationally recognized ballet training program. This intensive will culminate in an exquisite performance of Summer Fantasy on July 26 in Ferguson Hall, featuring a special staging of pieces from the iconic Company B, from Eran Bugge of the Paul Taylor Dance Company! Stay tuned for more details!

Little Shop of Horrors is in its second week of rehearsals and the show promises to be a fun and fantastic performance. Don’t miss this cult classic, complete with man-eating plant and some excellent performances from some truly talented musical theater students next weekend, July 19 and 20.

Students in our percussion camp got to make some noise this week as they worked with Patel Conservatory Youth Orchestra conductor Stephen P. Brown. They tried a variety of percussion instruments, worked on ensemble skills and even composed some original music.
