2017 Summer Dance Workshops and Intensives

Our 2017 Summer Workshops and Intensives are designed to give the experienced dancer an opportunity to immerse themselves in a style or technique they may not otherwise be exposed to, or to focus intensely on improving a particular skill. All workshops are designed for students in level III+ or equivalent level/experience unless otherwise noted (call 703-533-8830 or e-mail with level questions).

How to Register

You can register online, by phone (703-533-8830) or in-person at the studio.

NEW Full Day Intensive Option: Combine any of the week-long intensives below with a morning C.I.T. (Counselor in Training) experience to get a full day of dance education and fun. Being a Summer Camp Counselor In Training is a great way for serious dance students to gain valuable experience working with young children as they explore the teaching side of dance education. There is no cost to be a C.I.T. but all students must fill out a C.I.T. application and attend a short training session.

Students level III+ but under age 12 who are looking for full day options can talk to Miss Kendra about registering for the morning camps as a student leader.

> Dance Technique Intensives Dancers will participate in daily technique classes including Ballet, Jazz, Modern and Contemporary, as well as flexibility and conditioning, turns and leaps, acrobatic skills, and more! Bonus styles, exact skills and choreography will be different each week. Students are encouraged to sign up for either or both.
