Summer Dance

Summer Dance Program - June 17 - July 21, 2018

Summer dance is an intensive five-week program that offers rising 7th-12th grade students (who apply during their 6th-11th grade school year) pre-professional training in classical ballet with a modern/contemporary dance component. The ballet program, similar to the residential program, is based on long-established concepts and ideas taken from the Vaganova, Cecchetti and R.A.D. schools. The modern/contemporary dance component exposes students to theoretical concepts rooted in principles based on the Graham, Horton, Limon, and Cunningham techniques.

Our Summer Dance Program like our yearly program is committed to remaining at the forefront of a fast changing dance world by complementing its classical ballet and modern dance training with a diverse range of concert dance and dance related forms such as Character, African-based dance styles, Improvisation, Composition, Pantomime/Acting for Dancers, Music for dancers and Nutrition.

Our Summer Dance Program is physically demanding and rewarding training program that embraces the strength of both traditional and 21st Century concert dance.
