Connections-35International Summer Dance is a comprehensive dance program that specializes in all three styles: 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, Pilate's and yoga. 

Evening rehearsals for six-week participants are directed toward three performances in the George Rowland White Performance Studio.

Students are taught by a faculty featuring nationally and internationally recognized teaching artists.

The program is open to students ages 10 or older. However, 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 which weeks. Students must be able to commit to either the first three weeks of the program or the full six weeks.
