Registration for 2020 coming soon!

The Summer Dance Workshop is a two-week dance Intensive designed to build students' technique, etiquette, and choreography comprehension.  The curriculum includes daily technique classes in ballet, jazz and modern.  Students must choose a speciality class each week in either pointe, tap or strengthening.

To participate in this exciting program, students must be 10 to 18 years old. Although no audition is required, students must be familiar with basic dance terms and techniques. We welcome students who are at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level. Unfortunately, if this is your first time dancing, we recommend another program more suitable for your needs. 


Pointe Guidelines:

If a student selects pointe for their speciality class, they must have prior experience. We will not be covering the fundamentals. Students must have and bring their own pointe shoes to class each day. 


Tap Guidelines: 

No prior experience required. Students must have and bring their own tap shoes to class each day. 


Strengthening Guidelines:

No prior experience required. Students are encouraged to bring their own sneakers to class each day. 


Please Note: If an instructor feels that a student is not at a appropriate level (for any class), they will be asked to try another class. Please understand that we value your safety and this process is necessary to prevent injury.
