HSA Dance Summer Intensive is a ballet based, multidisciplinary experience for students with at least three years of consistent training. Ballet and Contemporary Modern Ballet classes will be a part of the daily curriculum. Pointe classes will also be offered. Three years of ballet training is recommended. To complement the ballet focus, the intensive will offer contemporary, jazz, Hip-Hop and African two to three times per week and will feature weekly guest artist workshops from superstars of the industry. Weekly open rehearsals for an invited audience will be presented. Original work will be created on participants and the intensive will culminate in HSA Dance’s annual, Summer Blaze performance.
