At South Sound Dance we truly believe in educating our dancers, enriching them, and ultimately inspiring them to be the best individuals they can be. With our Summer Dance Intensive program, we bring in a variety of guest artists and master instructors from around the country with different backgrounds in classical ballet, contemporary, jazz, hip hop, tap, vocal, theater, and more to create a schedule of classes that are challenging, fun, and motivating! The goal of the Summer Intensive is to expose intermediate dancers age 7 - 11 and intermediate/advanced dancers age 12 & up to curriculum and instructors they are not exposed to regularly to prepare them for advanced dance, college, and professional dance. Some examples of additional classes offered during this program that are so important to our young dancers are - Composition, Partner Work, Dance History, Auditioning, and health and wellness.
If you or your dancers are looking for a smaller program or even just a few days this program is for you! Dancers can register for a single day or for the full 8 day program at a much lower cost than attending a private convention or college program in a much more personalized setting with smaller class sizes.
