SI 15-17 Year Old Intensive Application

Summer Intensive Application Details

Thank you for your interest in our intensive! Our 15-17 year old students have gone on to college and training programs at Boston Conservatory, Point Park University, SUNY Purchase, and Hubbard Street Professional Training Program.

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.

If you are 15-17 years old and you attended a previous intensive as a full-time student, you are free to register and do not have submit a video again for open registration.

Please complete the instructions below first before submitting payment. After acceptance into the program, you will formally be invited to register for the intensive.

There is no deadline to apply. We will accept submissions until the program is full.

*"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 strong training background in the aforementioned styles. The student should also be comfortable learning with a group of collegiate, pre-professional, and professional dancers. We expect everyone to conduct themselves in a mature and professional manner.
