Summer Intensives


Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child,
      Listen to the DON'TS
      Listen to the SHOULDN'TS
      Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me-
      Anything can happen, child,

-Shell Silverstein

As the calendar keeps turning and we approach the end of our tenth season, we are overwhelmed by the beauty that anything can happen and anything can be. 

We are especially blessed this year to be sending several of our sweet students away for the summer. The students this year are incredibly hard workers and through their perseverance and God's grace, they are creating lives of excellence, pursuing the gifts that God has given them. 

Deanna Cudjoe and Sarah Justmann will head to New York for an intensive with American Ballet Theater, dancing in the same studios that Misty Copeland and Maria Kochetkova call home. 

Allison Bell will return for the third time to her summer ballet home in Philadelphia, The Rock School of Dance, where Alexandra Ansanelli and Beckanne Sisk made their first connections in the professional world.

Juliette Negvesky will travel south to Next Generation Ballet in Tampa where she earned a scholarship. Next Generation has served as a stepping stone to all of the major American and many European ballet companies for many young dancers, including Hannah Bettes. 

 Jeremy Leurart has been awarded a scholarship to attend Bossov Ballet in Maine! 

And finally, we have two bound for Joffrey Ballet. Isabella Sacca will attend their program in Denver, while Grace Weigel will get her inspiration and training in New York. 

We are so proud of you and all of the hours of sweat and pain and staying up late to do homework after class.

While we will miss those we are sending away, we will be doing our own hard work here at home! 

We have some of our favorite guest teachers returning this year, as well as some new faces! Classes include ballet, pointe, pas de deux, conditioning, contemporary, and choreography. We will conclude on Friday with a performance of excerpts from the week. 

We will be splitting our Summer Intensive into two levels in order to give some of our younger students the chance to work hard and get the full summer experience that our older students enjoy! The intensive is open to students from 9 to 18. Students will be split into levels after placement class on the first day. 

The intensive will be held June 27th through July 1st from 10am to 4pm every day. Our intensive is open to students from other studios as well. 

We believe in hard work and big dreams, so whether you want to follow in the footsteps of our out of town girls one day or you simply want to immerse yourself in the fun of dancing all day, every day for a week, sign up for this awesome opportunity in your own back yard! We encourage every single one of you to listen to the musn'ts, and then prove that anything can happen with a little determination. 

Cost: $270.
