Updates for Summer 2020:

We continue our preparation for our Summer Weekend Classes, Summerdance Youth Intensives, and Summer Teen Lab. After we get through these unprecedented times, we look forward to returning to the studios and dancing together.

Teen Lab announcement: Due to the sudden school closure, we had to cancel our Summer Teen Lab audition.  At this time, we would like to offer direct acceptance to the Lab to all our currently enrolled students in the following classes:

  • Youth Contemporary III
  • Teen Contemporary II, III IV, V
  • Ballet III, IV, V, VI
  • Seeds
  • Lab

While the audition allows us to see students dancing together and helps us group students in different levels, we will be able to do this with information we have from teachers’ assessments. We will have placement classes at the beginning of the Lab to confirm all decisions.  We hope this will let you plan ahead for summer, but you must still apply! We will consider applications in the order received, starting with those that were signed up for the audition. Students committed to all three weeks will be considered first. 

Space is limited, so please apply soon!

Thank you for being adaptive to our challenging times - we can all still move together, and be moved by each other!
