Painting competition - The Nutcracker
At the end of 2012, the Czech National Ballet Preparatory School announced a painting competition for its pupils on the theme of "The Nutcracker".
The works of pupils in individual grades were evaluated by the Czech National Ballet Preparatory School teachers.
During this year’s summer holidays, the 2nd edition of the holiday gathering Summer Arabesques took place between 21 July and 28 July. It was again held in the beautiful milieu of the chateau in Kostelec nad Černými lesy. Spacious training halls, first-rate accommodation and excellent food provided the ideal conditions for the participants to focus on the ballet programme. What’s more, the children were taught elementary English in a highly entertaining form. In their leisure time, they devoted to various games and sports and prepared their own choreographies. Sausage grilling on an open fire and a special “Olympics” in specific disciplines spiced up their stay too. The gathering ended with the final competition, within which the girls enthusiastically presented their choreographies. We look forward to seeing you again next summer, at 2013’s Summer Arabesques III.
