Room & Building Features
Ellison Ballet provides chaperones to supervise, live, and travel with the students throughout their participation in the Intensive. The chaperones are thoroughly vetted and background-checked with an extensive application process; usually they are parents of participating students.
Parents will have the opportunity to select the level of supervision their child will receive during the Intensive and while traveling between studios and residence. This option will be included in the housing forms sent to those students who reserve a space in housing upon enrollment.
