Please bring the appropriate dance attire ie: tights and ballet slippers , jazz pants and jazz shoes, tap shoes, (heels for the girls if you have them), knee pads, etc. ...... and Don’t forget your swim suit. Also, bring a picture and resume if you have one.

It is going to be a great week of dance. We are very excited that you are coming!  We are looking forward to getting to work with you. It is our determination that when you leave the “ Summer Intensive ” you will have grown as a person as well as an artist.
