International Summer Dance Program

DSC_9038_2Point Park's International Summer Dance is a comprehensive dance program that specializes in ballet, jazz and modern. The curriculum includes daily technique classes in ballet, jazz and modern, supplemented by pointe and variations, male technique, pas de deux, tap, music for dancers, pilates and yoga. 

Daily rehearsals are directed toward two performances in the state-of-the-art George Rowland White Performance Studio, part of the George Rowland White Performance Center. Participants may also enjoy several supervised field trips. Students are taught by a faculty featuring nationally and internationally recognized teaching artists. The program is open to students ages 10 or older. To live on campus in a residence hall, students must be at least 16 years of age. 

Summer Dance is a six-week program, however, students unable to commit to six weeks can attend for three weeks. Students cannot mix or choose your weeks. Students must be able to commit to either the first three weeks of the program or the full six weeks.
