Why Train at The Intensive?

The Dance Intensive is the perfect opportunity to learn from new instructors, push yourself to jump start your dance season, and continue dance education in a safe and positive environment.  

It's an opportunity to take at a different studio with no pressure, as the intensive is open to EVERYONE, from any studio or dance team! It's a time to celebrate the art of dance and dance education! 

How Much Does it Cost?

The Dance Intensive is a three week long program, but it is a week-by-week payment. Meaning if all three weeks of the intensive aren't fitting to your schedule you can opt for one or two weeks.

The cost is $160 per week or $425 for all three weeks. That's 12 hours per week of dance training! 


Discounts are offered to dancers from the same families (siblings/cousins) at a rate of 10% off your second family member.

DANCE TEAM DISCOUNTS: area dance teams with four or more members all receive 15% off their cost for the intensive. Open to middle school and high school dance teams- dancers do not have to all attend the same weeks to have the discount applied.
