Come to Malta for the 2018 International Summer School!
Sun, sea and sand… and sweat? Malta is well known for its “sun, sea and sand”, its heritage and cultural environment gives it its uniqueness in Europe. With over 300 sunny days in a year and surrounded by the Mediterranean “blue” Sea the island is a popular tourist destination. Yes of course there is also the golden sand but not as one imagines: long stretch of sandy beach… eliminate the “long stretch” but good enough to have a couple of beaches spread out around the islands. The word “sweat” may not be pleasant, but where does it fit in? In actual fact, during the summer season in Malta it can be sweltering hot, however, that is beside the point.
It’s wonderful news! The Russian Ballet Society have agreed that the 2 week intensive 2018 International Summer School will be held in Malta. The course will consist of 5 dance classes along with 2 hours of rehearsals per day leading up to an evening performance at the end of the 2 week stay. So yes dears… by the end of the day, sweating is inevitable!
The course will be held simultaneously at 2 ballet studios and the air-conditioned workspace belongs to Olivia Dow School of Russian Ballet in Naxxar, whilst the evening performance will be held at Sir Temi Zammit Theatre at the University of Malta in Msida. Accommodation throughout the 2 weeks has been booked at the University Residence in Lija, situated on extensive private grounds with a communal pool. There is much more to this sunspot than sun, sea and sand… there certainly is no shortage of fun or things to do in Malta.
The beauty of the Maltese long summer days till late evening is the variety of time well spent, whether at an early morning visit to the open market; tasting a delicious local cuisine in a quaint alley; or a late night out at a village feast. With roughly 28 miles long by 8 miles wide (excluding its sister islands: Gozo and Comino) Malta is small enough to travel around so wherever you wish to go to, it doesn’t take long to reach your destination. One of the best ways to get acquainted with the Maltese Islands is by sightseeing on the” hop on – hop off” open top buses. So what are you waiting for? Come join in! Or if you prefer, it’s the perfect combination of the two together into a wonderful family trip: some will sweat… and some will bathe under the “sun, sea and sand”!!!
