CLASSES: Our six-week summer session offers dance students the opportunity to continue a consistent dance practice or jump in and try a class for the first time. This is also a great time to try a new style, work towards a new level, and enjoy dancing in a more intimate class setting than the school year.

CAMPS & INTENSIVES: We offer a range of challenging, focused and invigorating summer camps and intensives. Camps are available for ages 4 to 18, from beginning to advanced level, in a variety of dance styles. Whether students are looking to try something new for the first time or are pre-professional dancers seeking immersive training, our extensive assortment of intensives, held in our fun and encouraging environment, are crafted to support and inspire. We look forward to dancing with you this summer!
