For serious young dancers, this summer intensive provides the experience of dancing in a professional yet 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 wile introducing them to other dance forms that will build their range of movement and expression.
  • Classes include ballet, pointe or pre-pointe, male technique, character, historic, contemporary, jazz and creative dance.
  • Dancers will have 15-minutes between each class and a 30-minute lunch break for a light snack (please bring a light lunch and water bottle).
  • The day will end with workshops in health and wellness, injury prevention, dance history and ballet terminology.
  • Students will share some of the work studied each week in an infomal performance on Zoom.
