ADVANCED SUMMER INTENSIVE 2022

June 27th - July 29th

13-18 yr olds

Monday-Friday 9:30-4:30

Artistic Directors Meridith Benson & Mario de la Nuez lead the group of professional world class instructors that make de la’s intensive a great experience in the art of dance. Our goal is to help foster the physical, technical, mental, emotional and artistic development of all students in small classes with a lot of individual attention. Classes will be taught by de la Directors and Staff,  select members of the company and guest faculty. Classes are geared to the serious dancer who needs a great training ground but desires smaller classes, personal attention, and a variety of dance forms. de la offers a unique blend of excellent training in a nurturing environment. We meet each individual dancer where they are. With four classes per day and rehearsals for a final performance, this intensive promises to be a catapult for young pre professional dancers to reach their goals as Americas future dancers. This year students will have the opportunity to perform in the Student Pre-show for DE LA Dance Company's "Dance Under the Stars."
