When students take the summer off or take a class here and there, dancers run the risk of losing some technical proficiency, physical flexibility and strength, as well as missing out on the opportunity to grow in their craft and love of performing arts.

Summer Intensives also provides opportunities to network and begin taking the next steps for their career.
