Baton Rouge Ballet Theatre will bring internationally recognized guest artists Franklin Gamero and Iliana Lopez to the capital city to teach at the ballet theater’s Summer Dance Intensive from Monday through Friday, June 15-19.

Husband and wife co-artistic directors of Gulfshore Ballet, these celebrated artists are returning to Baton Rouge after their performance as the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Cavalier in the company’s annual holiday production, “The Nutcracker — A Tale from the Bayou.”

All classes will be at Dancers’ Workshop, the company’s official studio, at 10745 Linkwood Court.

Intermediate and advanced level classes are available, and class assignments will be determined during the first class of the session.

Classes are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily, with drop off beginning at 8:30 a.m.
