INTENSIVES & WORKSHOPS

Weekend In-Studio Intensive

Weekend In-Studio Intensives brings world renowned teachers to work with participants to provide a sneak peek at what professional life is really like:  the schedule, the rehearsals, the intensity, the rigor, everything behind the glamour of life as a professional.  The  schedule is intense and pushes students to learn at an accelerated pace, giving them excellent final preparation before annual summer national competitions, as well as a head start on next year’s progress.

Weekend In-Studio Intensive is ideal whether you are looking for a summer intensive, trying to get ready for your summer nationals competition, or searching for the next step in your development such as a University.

Traditionally, parents spend thousands of dollars each year to send students to summer dance programs all over the country. Instead, the weekend In-Studio Intensive already has those world renowned teachers at your studio, making that experience possible for a fraction of the cost. Opportunities for scholarships to various summer intensives are offered such as Dance Theater of Harlem, Orlando ballet, Texas Ballet Theater, Lines Contemporary ballet, Steps On Broadway and more. We will workshop new, exciting, original choreography.
