Summer Intensive season is finally in full swing! Here’s just a taste of what our jam-packed July schedule looks like:
- We are just wrapping up a fun, engaging, and challenging week of our Dance Discovery session.
- Our Hip Hop Intensive begins next week, which we couldn’t be more excited about. (Want to join? Scroll down for more info.)
- Our Contemporary Intensive starts on July 18th. Due to popular demand, we’ve decided to open up our Contemporary Intensive—as well as our August Ballet Intensive—to adults who are willing to commit to the entire program. If you’re interested, please feel welcome!

Adult dancers (18+) can now join individual morning or afternoon classes from the summer Ballet, Contemporary, and Hip Hop/Street Styles Intensives!
This is a great option for adult dancers who can’t commit to a full day program, but crave a semi-intensive dance experience. Participants are required to commit to the daily class for the entire duration of the week or 2-week intensive.
THIS SUNDAY! Authentic Movement Workshop
Sunday July 10th, 1-4:30pm
with Paula Josa-Jones
Authentic Movement is a meditative, intuitive, improvisational movement practice involving a mover and a witness. It is a practice of listening, attunement; slowing and opening to a deeper sensing of body and psyche. It was developed by dancer and psychotherapist Mary Starks Whitehouse, who, following her work with Carl Jung, became curious about moving without intention, or the practice of “waiting to be moved.”
This simple meditation will provide the container for this workshop for both experienced movers and those who are new to this practice.
STARTS NEXT WEEK! Hip Hop & Street Style Intensive
July 11-15th, 8am-3pm, ages 12-adult
Taught by Andres Ramirez, King Charles, Kelli Forman, and Jackson Whalan
In this week-long program, students will learn foundational movements and techniques of hip-hop and street style, alongside the cultural meaning and significance of these moves.
The program will create an encouraging space to try out what you learn (and, most importantly, show off your unique style and personality) while freestyling in daily cyphers. Styles will include beginner’s breaking, party grooves, and footwork.
NOTE: The Celebration Jam and All-Styles Battle has been moved to Friday July 15th at 1pm.
