Dance like a champion
Summertime in the dance world can only mean one thing, summer intensive programs. They’re called that for a reason. Typically, students, looking to advance their training over the summer break, sign up for courses (usually three, four or six-weeks) taught by some the industry’s leading pros. The training is concentrated and intensified, making the most out of the few weeks they have. Some programs culminate in a performance, showing what students learned during the summer course. It’s great for students, a chance to improve and advance their skills. It’s great for professionals, who are on hiatus over summer break and are not performing with companies or teaching at the schools they’re affiliated with.
We’ll be featuring the offerings of a few standout schools throughout the summer. This story was originally posted in June 2015. Click here to read.
