Information for HSA Dance Summer Intensive 2019 Below!

We are still accepting registration. See below.

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 also offer contemporary, Hip-Hop and African classes. In celebration of a new partnership with the Radio City Rockettes, we will present weekly precision technique classes led by a Rockette. The intensive will feature guest artist workshops from superstars of the industry. Open rehearsals for an invited audience will be presented on Fridays and original work will be created on participants. The intensive will culminate in HSA Dance’s annual, Summer Blaze performance. We are still registering and accepting photos for assessment and acceptance into the program.
