15-17 Year Old Intensive Application


Since this is an intensive for *advanced dancers, we admit select students under 18 on a case-by-case basis based on the strength of a student's dance background. To be considered, we will need a video submission and a dance resume highlighting your training. Once accepted into the program, we will also need a parent/guardian to sign a release waiver for each student.

Please complete the instructions below first before filling out the registration form or sending payment. After acceptance into the program, you will formally be invited to register for the intensive.

*"Advanced" refers to the extent of a student's training in ballet, modern, jazz, and contemporary. The student should be able to learn advanced material in a fast paced environment and have a healthy training background in these styles. The student should also be comfortable learning with a group of adult dancers who are over 20 years old. We will expect everyone to conduct themselves in a mature and professional manner.
