Summer Intensive


The LACDC Summer Intensive offers a space to freely express yourself, discover and explore in a non-judgmental, uplifting, and supportive environment where your uniqueness is celebrated. Join LACDC Co-Founder Kate Hutter, Artistic Director Jamila Glass, Company Members and an array of L.A.'s top contemporary artists for advanced classes in ballet, contemporary, modern and jazz technique, improvisation, and LACDC Repertory.

This intimate program will be held at Stomping Ground L.A. and is geared towards college, pre-professional, and professional students (Ages 15+)*  who want to continue diving into their personal practices.  The intensive is recommended for advanced dancers with a minimum of 3-5 years of training in Modern, Ballet, and/or Jazz. It is not recommended for dancers who are new to contemporary dance or are looking for an introduction to modern or contemporary technique.

The curriculum of the intensive is focused on technical growth, expanding artistry, and creative exploration.  Students have the option to sign up for either week or both weeks.  The two-week program will culminate in a free showcase open to the public on the final day (Friday, July 29th).  

There is no deadline to register. Registration is open until we are full.

*Students ages 15-17 will be considered via an application process.

Week One of our Summer Intensive is SOLD OUT! There are a few spots open for Week Two. Register soon to secure your spot!

For those of you who are hoping to attend week one of our summer intensive, we have opened up a waitlist. To join the waitlist, please email your name to [email protected] and specify if you would like to do week one or both weeks. After joining the waitlist, you will be notified if a spot becomes available.
