Summer Intensive for our upper level students
All upper level Academy and Ballet Yuma company dancers need to continue classes throughout the summer months. An intermediate/advanced level dancer CANNOT take off for 2 ½ months and expect to make continued progress. Summer is also a perfect time to do concentrated work on technique, strength and artistry without the pressure of academic work. Placement for fall and company standing will be reflective of summer study.

We are holding the full-day Int/Adv summer intensive workshop for 3 weeks in June to allow any dancers going to an outside summer program to be fully prepared physically and reap the expertise of our guest faculty. In July we will continue with the morning technique session for Level 4 and up along with a full day Intermediate summer intensive for our Level 2&3 dancers.
