THE PREMISE You’re a standout at your home studio. You’re the dancer at your school. But you want more - and it can only be achieved through challenging curriculum and new experiences in a community of young artists who are as serious about dance as you are.
Bring your technique and tenacity to our rigorous three-week Dance program, where you’ll develop both physically and artistically under the guidance of nationally and internationally-renowned dancers and professionals. By immersing you in a schedule and mindset, our curriculum furthers your understanding of dance across genres, letting you finesse the styles you know and love and sharpen those you don’t. Spend well-deserved physical breaks delving into studies in dance history and theory and discussions of dance career options.
From choreographic and improvisational skills to opportunities to create movement material, let this program stretch your body, your mind, and your understanding of dance as an industry, a career and an art.
