The International Summer Intensive acts not only as a way for dancers to immerse themselves in their passion, but also as an opportunity for the dancers and faculty to asses which program is the right fit. The schedule is carefully crafted to ensure the dancers make the most of their extra training hours focusing on making noticeable improvement in their technique and artistry. We believe that each dancer should have tangible improvement by the end of the intensive. Dancers who are accepted for the upcoming season are required to attend additional training in August.
