SSOD Dancer Attends South Carolina Dance Conservatory Summer Intensive

B&B Dancer Harper Whitlock, the daughter of Austin and Heather Whitlock, attended the South Carolina Summer Dance Conservatory Ballet Intensive in Columbia, South Carolina this summer.

In addition to training in classical ballet and contemporary dance, this 3-week summer program offers a diverse curriculum that includes daily ballet technique, pointe and variations, repertory, partnering, jazz, flamenco  and character classes. Harper auditioned for the intensive in January and received a merit scholarship based on her audition results. Harper was honored to train this summer under world renowned dancers that included Petra Conti, former principal ballerina at Boston Ballet; Valentina Kozlova, former principal ballerina at New York City Ballet; Jennifer Ringer, former principal ballerina at New York City Ballet; James Fayette, former principal dancer at New York City Ballet; and Eris Nezha, former principal dancer at Boston Ballet.
