Session 1: June 25 – July 1, 2017
Session 2: July 2 – 8, 2017 

For girls ages 12 – 18.

Founded in 1997, the Dance Intensive provides an intimate setting for intermediate to advanced dancers to train with professional instructors.

Dancers take daily classes in ballet, jazz, and contemporary dance, with a daily Pilates or yoga warmup. The Intensive features a full day of dance with breaks for meals and an afternoon swim. Dancers also spend 1-2 repertory sessions each day in preparation for a performance at week’s end. In the evenings, dancers enjoy group outings. Dance films, trips to the local ice cream stand, and campus activities help girls unwind with friends after a busy day in the studio.

The Intensive takes full advantage of western New England’s rich dance offerings and artists. Dancers attend the International Dance Festival at Jacob’s Pillow in Lee, MA for a presentation on the Inside/Out stage and a performance on the main stage. Dancers also participate in a culminating performance at the end of the session that parents are encouraged to attend.
Dancers will enjoy:

  • Two technique classes daily
  • Two repertory sessions daily in preparation for the Saturday afternoon performance
  • Pilates classes
  • A field trip to the Dance Festival at Jacob’s Pillow to watch workshop classes, a presentation on the Inside/Out stage, and a performance on the main stage.
  • Personal attention in small classes to address technical and performing skills
  • Swimming pool, tennis courts and weight room
  • The beauty of our rural 100-acre campus
