Our inspiring faculty will be teaching classes in Classical Ballet, Jazz, Contemporary, Pointe, and specialty classes. Different levels of classes will be offered for students ages 8 and up with at least three years of dance training. A placement class will be given on the first day of the intensive to determine which level each student will be placed. Please do not question the placement results which will be determinined by the faculty.
