Preparatory Dance Summer Intensive

This Summer Intensive for serious young dancers provides the experience of dancing in a professional and nurturing environment. We take into account developmental needs while providing the tools for students to develop as well rounded artists.

Dancers will start each day with classical ballet followed by classes that will challenge and excite them; building on classical technique and introducing them to other dance forms that will build their range of movement and expression. Classes include: ballet, pointe or pre-pointe, boys’ class, character, contemporary, jazz and creative dance. The day will end with workshops in health & wellness, injury prevention, dance history and ballet terminology. We will share some of the work studied each week in an informal performance.
