Advanced Performance Dance Intensive (Audition Required)

Class Description

This intensive will be held online for summer 2020. Through a mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning, we are structuring our intensives to be creative, fun, and full of activities. If you have any questions about how we are moving to remote learning, please call or email with any questions.


The Advanced Dance/Performance Intensive offers a unique immersion for students intending to pursue dance in college.   An afternoon block in composition will guide students with the creation of a solo which can be used for college auditions.
