New technical insights and a sense of pride and accomplishment are some of the things students take home from the Summer Intensive.

Questions and Answers

Do I have to audition to participate in the Summer Intensive?
No, auditions are not required in order to enroll in Summer Intensive; however, it is recommended that dancers have at least 3 years of experience in formal dance training and currently take 3 ballet classes per week.

Dancers are in groups for the Summer Intensive.  Which group will I be in?
A separate panel of ballet teachers/professionals (who are not on summer staff) are employed to adjudicate placement classes that will take place on the first day of the program. Student groups will be posted by the end of the day on the first day of classes.  Some younger/less experienced dancers may be asked to attend Junior Intensive classes in the morning and Summer Intensive classes in the afternoon. Younger boarding students who take Junior Intensive classes in the morning will automatically be enrolled in afternoon classes with the Summer Intensive. Students who join the Intensive after the first day of placement classes will be put in contact with the Director of Summer Intensives, who will place the dancer in the appropriate program.
