FALL INTENSIVES is for the serious minded dancer who wants to train hard and seriously while developing refined technique without going to competitions. So if you either don’t have the desire for competitions or are not able to make the major sacrifices it takes to commit to the Competitive Team, but you still want to work at an intensive level, this is a great option for you. *There is no absentee policy for the Intensive Level of course within reason *see Absense-Tardiness on Main Menu.
The purpose of the half hour classes is to be able to fit all subjects in on one day. Intensives dancers train in multiple disciplines of dance. Many Intensives dancers take all of the subjects. This is for students who want to be pushed, can take corrections and apply them.
Intensives dancers are required to take a minimum of FOUR subjects for Fall Intensives and be well versed in those subjects. Stretch & Strength and Ballet are mandatory for all Fall Intensives students.
Dancers must attend a minimum of three weeks of Summer Intensives to continue their training and in order to be considered for the Fall Intensives Program. Prior training, knowledge and proficiency in Ballet is necessary. Intensives Program is for students ages 9-18 and final approval from the director.
Intensives will have a recital routine for the subjects they train in ie. Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical, Hip Hop. The Intensive Program will also have extra performance opportunities such as public performances at local events. We will also take a trip to NCY to take a dance class on Broadway and go see a Broadway show. We will have either a group lunch or dinner depending on schedule for some bonding time. This is a great program to give dancers solid technical training, expose them to some culture and have some extra performance opportunities doing what they love.
