Summer Camps & Programs
Summer Skill Builders
This program is for dancers to continue their training over the summer & to build upon their skills in an accelerated way. Attending 75-minute classes twice per week is equivalent to 2 months of training in just a short 3 weeks! Dancers who participate in our Summer Skill Builders are better prepared to continue dancing come September and will have had practice mastering new steps and choreography at a quicker pace than they did previously.
Each week of this summer's Skill Builder will have a different focus.
Week 1: Alignment & Anatomy; Week 2: Musicality & Technique; Week 3: Artistry & Performance.
