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, intellectual and artistic development of all students in small classes with a lot of individual attention. Classes will be taught by the directors, 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. 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.
