Summer Intensive (ages 10-18, by audition only)

Steps Youth Programs Summer Dance Intensives

Week 1: July 6 – July 10 | Week 2: July 13 – July 17 | Week 3: July 20 – July 24 | Week 4: July 27 – July 31

Program runs Monday – Friday, 12:00pm – 6:00pm. Students may attend individual weeks or any combination of weeks. For example, students may opt for weeks 1,2 and 4.

Students are selected through an online video audition (see audition information below for details).

We are taking the Summer Intensive online! This intensive will feature Steps core faculty and guest teachers, with classes in a variety of styles. Each day ends with a Repertory Workshop in which dancers will learn a piece of choreography from a guest choreographer. Students will then film themselves dancing the piece, submit the film to us, and we will create a culminating video for you of the piece with your fellow dancers. The Virtual Summer Intensive also features a weekly Industry Professional Q & A, as well as a Wellness Workshop from the Harkness Center for Dance Injuries.

The Summer Intensive helps students:

  • Strengthen technique
  • Build core strength
  • Increase flexibility & endurance
  • Cultivate personal artistry
  • Build self-confidence
