Summer Dance Intensive

For all dancers ages 6–18

Our 3-day Summer Dance Intensive allows students to further their training with in-depth classes in Ballet, Modern, Hip Hop, Musical Theater, Tap, and Jazz. There will be specialty classes that encourage discipline, explore body image, develop confidence, audition performance, injury prevention and food/nutrition. Students improve their skills not only in dance, but in life as well. As a part of this unique intensive, classes are smaller so students receive personal coaching and teaching from top professionals in their field. Our exceptional faculty and guest artists will transform your technique, ignite your artistry, and inspire your spirit.
